2012:

Prof. Dr. h. c. Ton Koopman, President of the International Buxtehude Society, was awarded the Buxtehude Preis of the Hanseatic City of Lübeck on September 29, 2012. This prestigious award is dedicated to extraordinary merits in the field of church music. The presentation took place in Lübeck in the Scharbau Hall of the Municipal Library. In his laudation, Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Sandberger honoured Koopman’s merits regarding the public reception of Buxtehude’s works, i. e. the cantatas.

After the celebration, the Hamburg Baroque Orchestra “Elbipolis” performed works by Schieferdecker, Telemann, Händel and Graupner in a festive concert in St. Mary’s church.


The 2012 meeting of the membership was held in Lübeck on 29 September. Topics of discussion have been the newly arranged presentation of Lübeck’s music historyin the St. Annen Museum and the question of a Buxtehude memorial site in St. Mary’s parish house (Werkhaus), which is to be redesigned in near future.

The Buxtehude Days 2012 have been celebrated May 9-13.
