creativity of those great composers.

Schütz and his Legacy

Works of H. Schütz, M. Weckmann, D. Buxtehude
At a very young age, Heinrich Schütz was noticed by Moritz von Hessen-Kassel for his singing and musical talent.
The Count decided to take care of his education and took charge of his legal studies as well as his musical education in Kassel with Georg Otto and then in Venice with the famous Giovanni Gabrieli.
On his deathbed, Gabrieli donated his ring to Schütz, whom he undoubtedly regarded as a spiritual son.
Throughout his life, Schütz composed and passed on his knowledge to a multitude of pupils.
His position as Kappellmeister and the fame he enjoyed enabled him to travel
throughout Europe. He passed on his knowledge and his art to other talented young composers such as Matthias Weckmann, Johann Theile, Christoph Bernhard, Vincenzo Albrici, etc.
This programme presents the fabulous legacy of the Master through magnificent pages of music composed by his best pupils.
