    Celebration, invention and deprivation

    Schütz was the most gifted German composer of the 17th century. As with many of his colleagues, much of his music was shaped by the events of the Thirty Years War, during which composers remained astonishingly inventive in producing a wide variety of styles and textures in the face of great horrors and deprivations. Tonight’s all-Schütz concert ranges from solos, duets and heartfelt lamentations to more lavish music written for prince-electors and peace celebrations, and to the composer’s great masterpiece Musikalisches Exequien, a meditation on life and death composed for a private patron, but as relevant to nations as to individuals.
