The Scheining - A Journey through the German Baroque
Friday 10th May 2019, 8:30pm - New College Chapel, Oxford
During the 17th Century, successive generations of German composers developed a dramatic, rhetorical musical language known as musica poetica. As conflict tore the region apart, musicians expressively reflected on the horrors of war, the grim realities of life and death, and the hope for peace and joy in the life to come.
This programme moves from works from before the Thirty Years War by Johann Schein and Heinrich Schutz, through the wartime experiences of Duchess Elisabeth Sophie of Mecklenburg and Samuel Scheidt, to the grandeur of late-century works by Johann Christoph Bach.
