The year 1654 in classical music and in lyrical art
1654. With other artists, John George II, Elector of Saxony, Samuel Scheidt and Athanasius Kircher influenced their time (baroque era). That year would see the birth of future classical or lyrical artists, while others would disappear. That year, new works would be composed, published or performed for the first time in public, such as “Le Temps” de Jean-Baptiste Lully, for example.
All these moments, more or less notable, make the year 1654 a page in the history of classical and lyrical music to be discovered or rediscovered. soclassiq currently lists 19 of these moments for 1654.
