In 1705, a young composer embarked on an epic journey to meet his musical hero. Johann Sebastian Bach was just 20 years old when he set out on foot to walk the 250 miles to Lübeck, home to the great composer and organist Dietrich Buxtehude. Horatio Clare retraces the young composer’s steps in an immersive episode of BBC Radio 3’s Slow Radio podcast. This episode of Slow Radio is adapted from Bach Walks, a five-part series on BBC Radio 3. For more information and to listen again, visit the Radio 3 website.
