Our cultural tip for March 2022


A passion concert with Leipzig students: “Stabat mater” by Domenico Scarlatti takes center stage at the Church of the Holy Cross in Leipzig’s Neustadt district.

Our cultural tip for March is a concert on the 1st of April. Scarlatti's “Stabat mater”, a masterpiece of Italian vocal music, and works by Marc-Antoine Charpentier, Johann Christoph Bach, Carlo Gesualdo and Francis Poulenc will be performed. The program was put together with Holy Week in mind.

The ensemble Lachrymae, composed mostly of students, was founded in the summer of 2021. Under the direction of Jonas Kraft, the young ensemble is concerned with the rediscovery and dissemination of unknown masterpieces, especially focusing on French Baroque music. However, the young musicians also perform contemporary works and world premieres.
