The Stabat Mater and Litany to the Virgin Mary are more austere works, as their subject matter requires, with reflective moments of a cappella choral singing and delicately accompanied vocal solos, but they inhabit the same harmonic landscape as the Third Symphony. While the symphony is characterized by an almost erotically charged ecstasy, the passions that these pieces voice are expressions of intense grief or profound religious devotion. The confidence and vitality of this recording testifies to the performers' familiarity and fluency with this music
Szymanowski, Stabat Mater, Litany, Symphony No. 3 - Simon Rattle.
Szymanowski: Stabat Mater/Litany To the Virgin Mary/Symphony 'Song of the Night'. This 1993 recording led by Simon Rattle is a beauty. It contains a very musical interpretation of one of Karol Szymanowski's best works, the Stabat Mater (1926), as well as successful interpretations of one of the musician's last, the 10-minute long Litany for the Virgin Mary, and the earlier 3rd Symphony, for tenor, chorus and orchestra. The Stabat Mater is the stand out here.
