The year 1661 in classical music and in lyrical art
1661. With other artists, Jean-Baptiste Lully, John George II, Elector of Saxony and Heinrich Schütz 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 “Courage, Amour, la Paix est faite” de Jean-Baptiste Lully, for example.
All these moments, more or less notable, make the year 1661 a page in the history of classical and lyrical music to be discovered or rediscovered. soclassiq currently lists 19 of these moments for 1661.
