Es wird die Zeit diese Musik hier vorzustellen. Jacob Cooper: „Stabat Mater Dolorosa“ gehört zu meiner täglichen Playlist. Dieses extrem langsame Stück hat eine starke Sogwirkung und eröffnet eine neue Klangwelt. Und die Ähnlichkeit zu Giovanni Battista Pergolesi’s „Stabat Mater“ ist hörbar, „Stabat Mater Dolorosa“ von ihm ist auch zu hören …

Jacob Cooper says, “When I wrote Stabat Mater Dolorosa (2009) a decade ago, I was fascinated by empirical studies that suggest we experience an extreme slowing-down of time at the moment of (near-)death—a car suspended in the air during a violent crash, or a slip down a steep rock face, creating a sense of eternal present. I decided to transfer this concept of temporal hyper-magnification to music, using a time-stretched version of the first movement of Pergolesi’s 1736 Stabat Mater as a point of departure. While the Stabat Mater text focuses on the Virgin Mary’s grief over Jesus’s death, Stabat Mater Dolorosa piece sheds the Christian framework, adapting the text to contemplate maternal grief more generally while attempting to retain much of what a religious meditation can offer: unencumbered time to reflect, a sense of spirituality, and perhaps, even a brush with transcendence.”
