Martin Randall Travel's music festivals feature world-class performers in the finest and most appropriate venues. These festivals are organised and operated solely by MRT and are exclusive to MRT clients. Although numbers are much larger than on small-group tours—from 150 to 300 people—the principles of care, detail and intimacy, far from being diluted, are simply applied on a grander scale.
- Journeying to the places where Johann Sebastian Bach lived and worked.
- The audience stays in hotels in three different places, Mühlhausen, Weimar and Leipzig, and the concerts take place here and in three other towns.
- Admission to the eight concerts is exclusive to those who take a complete package which includes hotels, flights from the UK, private coaches, dinners and lectures.
