The year 1669 in classical music and in lyrical art
1669. With other artists, Heinrich Schütz, John George II, Elector of Saxony and Barbara Strozzi influenced their time (baroque era). That year would see the birth of future classical or lyrical artists, such as Louis Marchand, while others would disappear. That year, new works would be composed, published or performed for the first time in public, such as “Monsieur de Pourceaugnac” de Jean-Baptiste Lully, for example.
All these moments, more or less notable, make the year 1669 a page in the history of classical and lyrical music to be discovered or rediscovered. soclassiq currently lists more than 30 of these moments for 1669.
