Concerts 2021

LAUDATE DOMINUM

Festive music of the Hanseatic cities

European Hanseatic Ensemble
Manfred Cordes, conductor

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

The programme

Towards the end of the Hanseatic period, it was the cities of Hamburg and Gdansk from which a sheer overflowing number of great works have emerged. But musical culture also flourished in cities like Lüneburg, Stettin or Stralsund – to name just a few. The first part of this year’s programme of the European Hanseatic Ensemble includes resounding works for important church festivals. But the composers also delivered imaginative works for the wedding celebrations of the “moneybags”, created for a unique occasion but of no lesser quality and tonal variety.

The programme concludes with jubilant music celebrating the conclusion of the Peace of Westphalia in 1648, which was extensively celebrated in many cities after the cruel and depriving years of the Thirty Years’ War. Masters such as Hieronymus and Jacob Praetorius, Thomas Selle, Crato Bütner or Philipp Dulichius are largely unknown today, but they created great compositions that have been waiting to be discovered and revived for centuries.

You can find a digital version of the programme (German only) here.

You can listen to the concert on 18 November 2021 at 8 p.m. on NDR Kultur.
