Heinrich Schütz 350 Project
2022 marks 350 years since the death of the German composer Heinrich Schütz (1585-1672). Whilst relatively unknown, Schütz is one of the most important figures in the history of music, straddling the period between the end of the Renaissance and the High Baroque. He spent two extended periods in Venice under the tutelage of Giovanni Gabrieli, and later Claudio Monteverdi, which came to define his musical language, heavily influencing not only the music of his contemporaries, but also the great composers of the later German baroque era, such as Buxtehude, Telemann, Handel and JS Bach.
Throughout 2022, David will present performances & recitals of Schütz's wonderful music across the UK in collaboration with some of the country's brightest talents, including baroque specialists The Brook Street Band and upcoming early music group Endelienta Baroque. Visit David's Calendar for more details and other Schütz-related events throughout the year.
