In Breitscheidstraße of Lübtheen, opposite the elementary school, there is a well-kept park bearing the name of Friedrich Chrysander. The latter is one of the most important personalities of the town. On the occasion of the 150th birthday in the mid-1970s, a stone bust was erected in his honor in the park.
Friedrich Chrysander was born in Lübtheen on July 8, 1826. The musicologist and editor became known primarily for his research and studies on Friedrich Händel, whose work would probably be forgotten today without the Lübtheen native. Together with the historian Georg Gervinus, Chrysander founded the German Handel Society in 1856 with the aim of publishing the works of George Frideric Handel. He later wrote a biography of Handel, which, however, remained unfinished, but is nevertheless of particular importance in the history of music. In addition, as editor of the Allgemeine musikalische Zeitung, he was a pioneer of music criticism as well as author and editor of the first complete edition of Handel's works. Choirs and orchestras throughout Germany were supplied with scores from Chrysander's print shop at the time, helping to give Handel the popularity his work still enjoys today. He died in Bergedorf near Hamburg on September 3, 1901.
