Studio de musique ancienne de Montréal - Schütz 350

Guest presenters

The most important German composer before Bach, Heinrich Schütz, who died at the age of 87 in 1672, was regarded as the father of German music—both for his genius and for his tireless pedagogical activity. A disciple of Gabrieli and Monteverdi, he adapted the new Italian forms to the German language and to the Lutheran faith in compositions of great depth. Composed towards the end of his life, his Christmas Story still delights, with freshness and expressive truth conveyed through its melodic charm and the choice of instruments accompanying each character. His last published work, a German Magnificat for two choirs, represents the quintessence of his art and serves as a legacy.
