The 250 Mile Walk

The 250 Mile Walk

In autumn 1705 the 20-year-old composer J.S. Bach walked 250 miles to hear the brilliant organist Dietrich Buxtehude play in Lübeck. The event was a life changing moment for Bach, not only having a huge impact on his music but also a turning point in musical history.

This fascinating programme will be presented by Kate Conway and Simon Lloyd on viola da gamba and harpsichord, two of the most important instruments of the early baroque. This engaging concert traces the musical development from the wilder improvisatory style of Buxtehude to the more formal structures of Bach.

Tickets £15 including a glass of Prosecco, available on the door.
