CSM Festival Chorus
Tim Brown – conductor
In the grand finale of the 2016 Festival, distinguished conductor Tim Brown directs the CSM Festival Chorus and Orpheus Sinfonia in a performance of Rossini’s masterful and spectacular Stabat Mater. Written late in Rossini’s life and over ten years, this heartfelt setting of the well-known Christian poem owes much to the composer’s career in opera while nevertheless demonstrating a rigorous contrapuntal technique. With rousing bombast astride lyrical introspection, this will be a Festival finale to remember!

“The sweeping energy and rich detail of Tim Brown’s interpretation draw out the best from his young performers.” Classic FM, 2009
