Event DescriptionAside from his visits to Italy and a brief sojourn in Copenhagen, Schütz spent most of his working life at the Saxon court in Dresden, and his presence there was essential to establishing a distinctive German style of writing for organ and for voices. He also wrote the first German opera (now lost). Restrictions to musical activity brought about by the Thirty Years War meant that much of his output during that time was for small forces, with single voices and a small instrumental ensemble being the norm.
