Nowadays, Heinrich Schütz – with his two friends and colleagues from the “SCH trio” by his side, named after their last names’ initials – is considered as one of the most important and influential composers of early German baroque, even if he also received this recognition during his lifetime. During the 55 years he served as Kapellmeister at the court of Dresden, he was a highly sought-after and esteemed professor, and a large number of his former students went on to have brilliant careers. Rarer still, Schütz took it upon himself to “place” his students, sparing neither his efforts nor his time to write well-meaning letters of recommendation. His influence on 17th-century German music therefore is paramount, directly through his students or even his disciples’ disciples. Unfortunately, the vast majority of these disciples are not recognised anymore: who remembers Clemens Thieme (recommended by Schütz for the position of music master and then Kapellmeister of the new chapel founded by Moritz of Saxe), Johann Furchheim, Johann Vierdank (appointed organist at St. Mary’s Church in Stralsund), David Pohle or Johann Jacob Löwe (even though he became Kapellmeister at the court of Wolfenbüttel in 1655)? The Arpa Festante, an orchestra founded in 1983 that specialises in ancient music, therefore set out to rediscover these real gems written by magnificently gifted composers, and we can only hope that other numerous works will soon reach our ears.
