Being granted the opportunity to open and close the Heinrich Schütz Musikfest and, as Artist in Residence, to perform three concerts in between: it illustrates once again how intimately Vox Luminis and Heinrich Schütz are connected. We honour Schütz at ‘his’ festival in his home regions of Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia during those five concerts with a varied selection of his works: his Musicalische Exequien, extracts from Symphoniae sacrae III, Psalmen Davids and Geistliche Chormusik.
Please check our agenda!
The Musikfest Bremen invites you to apply to take part in its early music Atelier for talented young musicians!
Lionel Meunier, artistic director of Vox Luminis, together with his team of experts in historically informed performance, will guide specially selected young musicians on a musical journey exploring the composers that shaped Johann Sebastian Bach’s musical world, with ensemble workshops, masterclasses, lectures and rehearsals.
The first Atelier, from 30 August to 3 September, focuses on Johann Kuhnau’s Magnificat in C Major, marking the 300th anniversary of the composer’s death. Further repertoire includes works by Johann Pachelbel and Thomaskantoren before Bach. The results will be presented on Saturday 3 September 2022 in a concert at the St. Cyprian-und Corneliuskirche in Ganderkesee with its Arp-Schnitger organ as part of the 33th Musikfest Bremen.
