Flamingus, Johannes


(fl 1565–73). Flemish composer. He is first recorded in Leiden, where he is thought to have been phonascus of St Pieter in 1565–7. In 1571 he was engaged at the music-loving Lutheran court of Mecklenburg in Schwerin as director of court music to Duke Johann Albrecht I, where he remained until 1572/3. He last appears as cantor in Zwickau in 1573. A great deal of his music survives, all in autograph copies. He was among the copyists of additional music in the Leiden choirbooks D, E and F (NL-L 1441–3): one mass, 26 motets, three settings of the Magnificat and four of the Nunc dimittis and one hymn are ascribed to him and complete; four masses, a motet, a Nunc dimittis setting and a hymn are incomplete; and one more mass, 12 complete and four incomplete motets and an incomplete hymn are probably by him though lacking any ascription (see Ruhnke). These are all four- or five-voice works on plainchant cantus firmi. A finely-bound set of six partbooks dated 1571 and dedicated to Johann Albrecht I of Mecklenburg, entitled Opusculum cantionum, survives (in D-ROu) from Flamingus's time at the court in Schwerin. It contains a five-voice mass and 10 motets, which may have constituted a liturgical cycle celebrating the conclusion of the Seven Years' War between Denmark and Sweden. Four of the motets have Low German texts, among them an attractive O Lam Gades. Another autograph from his Schwerin period is a Missa nova ‘Etsi me occiderit Dominus’ dated 1573 (ROu, Cantus 2 only). No music survives from his stay in Zwickau or later. Like so many other Netherlandish musicians who occupied positions in court chapels and cathedrals all over Europe in the 16th century, Flamingus was an uneven composer, but at his best his music is very fine indeed.

Flammer, Ernst Helmuth


(b Heilbronn, 15 Jan 1949). German composer and musicologist. His first choice of study was mathematics and physics (1969–72), but in 1975 he changed his focus to music, studying counterpoint and theory with Peter Förtig and composition with Klaus Huber and Ferneyhough at the Musikhochschule in Freiburg. He also received occasional tuition from Dittrich. Over the same period (1974–80) he studied art history, philosophy and musicology at Freiburg University with Eggebrecht among others. He graduated (DPhil 1980) with a dissertation on Nono and Henze. From 1980 to 1981 he taught at the Staatliche Hochschule für Musik at Trossingen and from 1982 to 1985 at Freiburg University. After 1985 he served as a visiting lecturer at Newcastle University and Salzburg Mozarteum, in Odessa, St Petersburg and Paris, and taught regularly at the Darmstadt international summer schools, where he also served as a jury-member for the Kranichstein prize (1986, 1994). From 1985 to 1987 he was artistic director of the Ensemblia festival in Mönchengladbach and from 1985 to 1990 ran the Freiburg ‘ensemble recherche’, of which he was a founding member. In 1993 he initiated the International Pianists’ Forum (Contemporary Piano Music Festival) ‘… antasten …’ in Heilbronn. He has received awards from many sources, including the cities of Baden-Baden, Dresden, Freiburg, Hanover, Paris, Parma, Rome and Stuttgart.

Flammer’s work as a composer, governed by an existential engagement, protests against the inhumane elements in society and against blind – or even overly simplistic – faith in science and technology. He demands from his interpreters and listeners, and from himself, a correspondingly high degree of artistic engagement, which expresses itself both in the complexity of his musical structures and in the progress of the musical material.
