Born in Danzig in 1626, Balthasar Erben was a cosmopolitan. When he applied for the position of Kapellmeister of the main church of St. Marien in his hometown at the age of 27, the council granted him a generous scholarship so that he could “look around the world and perfect himself as a composer”.

For five years, Erben traveled throughout Europe, visiting all the centres of musical culture of the time, including Rome.

His compositional style, which was developed during this time, is correspondingly distinctive: a combination of different influences, cleverly interwoven.

The Abendmusiken Basel offer an impressive collection of instrumental and sacred works by the composer who is unfortunately little known today.
