L’Anneau d’or, Heinrich Schütz

Les Traversées Baroques

Heinrich Schütz, who we celebrated in 2022 on the 450th anniversary of his death, described with great precision the filial relation he had with his master, Giovanni Gabrieli. He kept the golden ring bequeathed to him in 1612 by Gabrieli until his own death in 1672.

Similarly, nearly a century later, Mattheson’s testimony shed light on Schütz’ relationship with his own student, Christoph Bernhard. Such a passing of the torch is always done with respect and admiration, especially coming from an absolutely exceptional composer, but already when Schütz spoke of this transmission, the style of music was already changing. The present programme will juxtapose Heinrich Schütz’ Psalms of David with Giovanni Gabrieli’s Sacrae Symphoniae. The funerary motet commissioned by Schütz to Christoph Bernhard, premiered in Dresden on 17 November 1672, and played during his funeral, has been lost. Another piece by Christoph Bernhard will complete the programme.
