Were you were among those who came to the ‘Bach Walks’ talk at the 2019 Festival, at which Fiona Talkington interviewed Lindsay Kemp about the BBC Radio 3 ‘slow radio’ programmes he made in 2017 with writer Horatio Clare (pictured above) about Bach’s 250-mile walk from Arnstadt to Lübeck to meet his hero, the composer and organist Dietrich Buxtehude? If so (and perhaps even if not), you may like to know that the five original broadcasts will be repeated in one omnibus edition this coming Monday 25 May on Radio 3, starting at 2.00pm.
You can hear it live on air or online, or subsequently online. Having listened to it again already, we can tell you that it’s a bit like a calming message from another existence. Do catch it if you can.
