Bach in Leipzig

Monday 26 May 2008 0:00-1:00 (Radio 3)

Lucie Skeaping examines Bach's time in the German town of Leipzig, where he remained from 1723 until his death in 1750. After working for Prince Leopold of Anhalt in Cothen, Bach took a substantial drop in salary and public standing to work as Cantor in Leipzig. The role primarily involved teaching at St Thomas's School, but it also meant that Bach was responsible for the music in the German town's four churches.

This is a repeat of a programme previously broadcast.  View details.
