Bach Walks

A second chance to hear Horatio Clare's retracing of JS Bach's 250-mile journey on foot from Arnstadt to Lubeck, first broadcast as five separate programmes in December 2017.

In 1705 the 20-year-old Johann Sebastian Bach set off from his home in Arnstadt to walk 250 miles to L├╝beck, there to meet his hero, the composer and organist Dietrich Buxtehude. Writer Horatio Clare's series of five 'slow-radio' walks searching for Bach's footsteps - and his ghost - in the fields and woods of central and northern Germany was first broadcast in December 2017; here they are presented in a single omnibus version.
