The fifth concert in our series of "Music from Wolfenb├╝ttel Castle" features performances and recordings of multifaceted cantatas by Georg Caspar Sch├╝rmann. Like no other musician before him, Sch├╝rmann exercised a comprehensive influence on the Wolfenb├╝ttel court music world during his more than fifty years of service there. During these decades he produced an impressively extensive and richly varied oeuvre: almost thirty operas, numerous table compositions, a Passion, and various church cantatas for large ensembles are documented. In his Christmas cantata "Siehe, eine Jungfrau ist schwanger" we experience Sch├╝rmann as a composer of gripping ensemble compositions with finely chiseled fugue subjects. For many years the anonymous New Year's cantata "Nimm das Opfer unsrer Hertzen" was also ascribed to Sch├╝rmann. Although Georg ├ľsterreich is now assumed to have been it's composer, the opening aria in particular with it's highly effective postponement of the resolution of dissonances displays a clear stylistic closeness to Sch├╝rmann's opera arias from this time.
