During the baroque era, people were confronted with death much more frequently and as a matter of course. This was also reflected in music; Johann Sebastian Bach’s early Actus Tragicus and Heinrich Schütz’ Musicalische Exequien are outstanding examples. They will be combined at the Philharmonie together with more rarely-heard vocal works of smaller dimensions of the same era – in an interpretation suffused by the wisdom the performers have acquired over decades of studying the material’s musical and theological aspects. A pre-concert talk in German by Silke Leopold is dedicated to this topic at the Salle de Musique de Chambre at 7:15 pm.
