Les Cris de Paris / Sacred Symphonies
ÎLOT SYMPHONIES SACRÉES
David and Solomon
Sacred symphonies (Song of Songs)
Considered Germany’s greatest pre-Bach composer, Heinrich Schütz developed treasures of invention in his Psalms of David, edifying nothing less than a cathedral in sound. In this spatialized concert, featuring a selection of his most spectacular pieces, and adding the Song of Solomon and Schütz’s sacred symphonies, Geoffroy Jourdain and the Cris de Paris deploy the full colour range of the “German Monteverdi”.
