Heinrich Schutz
Birth: Oct. 8, 1585
Death: Nov. 6, 1672

Composer. He studied in Venice with Giovanni Gabrieli and was Kapellmeister of Dresden from 1617 to 1656. Although he wrote the first German-language opera, "Dafne" (1627, now lost), most of his compositions were sacred settings, including three Passions, Christmas and Easter Oratorios, and many Psalms. His style was decisive in introducing Italian Baroque to his country. Schutz was the first German composer to achieve international reputation and the most important German musician before J. S. Bach. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
