christoph ehbets – design concept ‹schuetz eterna edition› | 1972

 



in 1972 started deutsche schallplatten an edition of heinrich schütz recordings devoted to his celebrating year. already published recordings of his work were republished in addition to upcoming productions all together in the new design by christoph ehbets. background of the covers are woodcuts, etchings and paintings of the well known artist of the german renaissance albrecht dürer, except for the rembrandt painting with a portrait of a musician. the painted person was attributed to heinrich schütz. ehbets used a variable grid for the composers name and the title (garamond type). other information like performers, catalog numbers or descriptions were radical banished of the cover. for this reason the schütz edition has a high recognition factor.
