About

In 1705, a promising young musician spent days walking the 250 miles (400 km) from central Germany all the way to Lübeck in the north, just for the chance to meet and learn from the renowned organist and composer Dietrich Buxtehude. On arrival, the talented 20-year-old extended his stay for four months, participating possibly in the storied Abendmusiken (“evening concerts” of sacred and instrumental music) that would profoundly impact his own compositions. His name was Johann Sebastian Bach, and before he passed into music legend, he revered and studied Buxtehude, the most famous organist of his day.
