The International Carl Loewe Society e. V. has made it its mission to preserve, nurture, breathe life into and publish Carl Loewe's legacy.
Carl Loewe was a composer, organist, singer, master of the German-language ballad and music director for more than four decades.
He was born in 1796 in the small town of Löbejün, north of Halle an der Saale, Germany. This is also where our company is based.
Carl Loewe worked in the first half of the 19th century in Stettin, then the capital of the Prussian province of Pomerania. From here he traveled to the musical

centers of Central and Western Europe and gave guest appearances in numerous concerts there.
In Vienna he was called the “Schubert of the North”. For us, he was and is a gifted romantic master whose works touch and fascinate millions of people around the globe.

Let us invite you to a little journey of discovery with Carl Loewe.
