The Heinrich Schütz Music Festival is held under the motto "Klang.Welt.Wissen" (Sound.World.Wisdom) and asks questions about knowledge of the world, about human responsibility and conscience, about our constitution in the face of the challenges and dangers of the present. In the search for answers, the 17th century, so rich in upheavals and reorientations, can be a mirror whose reflection can help us to gain insights and knowledge. So let us discover together the knowledge of the world captured in sound in the works of Heinrich Schütz and his contemporaries!
