musical history

 

 

The reprehensible devastation of the precious city centre at the end of World War II faded out many traces of the glorious musical history of the capital of Saxony, although some important buildings have been reconstructed. But the medieval St. Sophia church with its Silbermann organ is finally lost, as are all the inner city houses of composers.
In the 17th century Heinrich Schütz was the leading musician, 1617-72. In the 18th, during the reign of August der Starke, the musical life reached its peak: Hasse (opera), Zelenka (church music), Heinichen (orchestra) and the violinist Pisendel all worked here as court musicians - Splendid festival in September 1719 (3 operas by Lotti, various concerts) - In 1736 Bach was honoured with the title of court composer; he visited the town seven times. His son Friedemann was organist at St. Sophia, 1733-47 - In 1760 (during the 7 years war), Schütz MSs and Hasse's library got lost - In the 19th century Weber (1817-26) and Wagner (1846-49) led the court opera.
Also having lived in Dresden: Schumann, 1844-50, and Rakhmaninov, 1906-09.
