In 1705, the young Johann Sebastian Bach’s famed walk from Arnstadt to Lübeck to attend the evening concerts (Abendmusiken) directed by the old master organist-composer, Dietrich Buxtehude, brought about one of the most important connections in music history.

Inspired by experimentation and transformation, this programme reveals Bach and Buxtehude’s thirst for colour and texture, featuring Sonatas for different combinations of instruments in original and new versions.

  • Catherine Latham - Recorder/Voice Flute
  • Rachel Byrt - Viola/Violin
  • Susanne Heinrich -Viola da Gamba
  • Christopher Bucknall - Organ/Harpsichord
