Es erhub sich ein Streit im Himmel

Festive music of the Hanseatic cities for Michaelmas

European Hanseatic Ensemble
Manfred Cordes, conductor

Patron: Jan Lindenau, Mayor of the Hanseatic City of Lübeck and “Vormann” of the Hanseatic League

Concert program

During the important church festivals magnificent music was played in all the large churches of the Hanseatic cities. The concert program of this year’s European Hanseatic Ensemble, which will also serve as a first impression of the ensemble on the concert map, includes works from the 17th century from Hamburg and Gdansk for the feast of Michaelmas (September 29th).

Although composers such as Hieronymus Praetorius, Thomas Selle, Paul Siefert or Christoph Werner are largely unknown today, they created magnificent compositions that have been waiting to be discovered and revived for centuries.

Doors open 45 minutes before the concert.

May be subject to change.

You can listen to the concert on October 19th 2020 at 8 p.m. on NDR Kultur.
