The Hanseatic League was a successful alliance between major cities of 11 countries in Northern Europe, from London to Tallinn, which dominated trade in the North and Baltic seas from the 13th-17th centuries. Like an early version of the European Union, it promoted tolerance and respect towards different cultures, ensuring the survival of one of the most spectacular alliances in Western history.
This concert brings together two European ensembles in a programme that represents music from each of the Hansa states in a journey through space and time.
Composers include: Hieronymus Praetorius, Schütz, Byrd, Tallis and Sweelinck, as well as lesser known composers from smaller European countries.
There will also be a free pop-up performance by Canto Fiorito and Musica Antiqua Salzburg at approximately 10.30am at the BA i360 Tower on Sunday 4 November.
