Texas Early Music Project

Pathways to Bach—J.S. Bach didn’t just appear out of nowhere. Dieterich Buxtehude, “the father of German musicians,” greatly influenced Bach; and before that, Buxtehude was influenced by Heinrich Schütz, the trendsetter of a German musical tradition that would last for more than two hundred years. For its opening concert of the season, Texas Early Music Project performs some of the most technically and emotionally powerful music by Buxtehude and Schütz, featuring Schütz’s Musikalische Exequien and Buxtehude’s magnificent cantata, Herzlich lieb hab ich, for chorus, soloists, and orchestra.
