Heinrich Schütz (1585 - 1672), like his contemporary Schein, was one of the most important German composers before Bach. Early in his career, he studied with Giovanni Gabrieli in Venice. He returned to Venice again to study with Monteverdi quite some years later. Like Monteverdi, Schütz was a transitional composer who wrote in both the late Renaissance and early Italian Baroque styles. Approximately five hundred of his works survived. Die Konzertisten will perform this piece on 12 Aug (Sat), together with two Bach cantatas. Please come and support!
