Saxony, State of the Arts, Presents Martin Luther to Music10:45 AM
In 2017, the state of Saxony, in the eastern part of Germany, is celebrating the 500th anniversary of the date when Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the famous church door, calling for a debate and reform of the Catholic Church.
For Luther, music was a vital part of the church service, and an expression of devotion, prayer and communion with God.
To honor and commemorate the role of music in Martin Luther's life, Saxony Tourism has created the podcast about Luther's legacy, highlighting places in Saxony that were important to Luther, accompanied by music based on hymns that he himself composed.
In Dresden, the Semper Opera, the Staatskapelle Dresden, and the 800-year-old Holy Cross Boys Choir are major institutions that are lively parts of the city's cultural life.
In this podcast, listeners can literally hear the sounds of Saxony.
