A coproduction with:


He is certainly one of the composers who were much better known in their time than we think today: Johann Rosenmüller is even described on his epitaph in the Wolfenbüttel St. John’s Church as “Amphion of his century” and “crown of music”. At least in the music of the second half of the 17th century, he left deep marks on his main places of action, Leipzig and Venice. Especially his spiritual concerts for a voice and instruments were stylistic and combined German and Italian elements: the majority of the accompaniment of five string voices is required, which was more common in German-speaking countries; his tone language, which is characterized by a catchy-smooth melody, rich harmony, detailed interpretation of the text and high virtuosity, but works through and through Italian. The Basel evening music presents an impressive picture of European cultural diversity of the past.
