INTRODUCTION

 

Journeying to the places where Johann Sebastian Bach lived and worked is an experience as near to pilgrimage as is offered by the history of music. And hearing his music in buildings which he frequented, or even where it was first performed, must rank among the highest delights available to music lovers. This unique festival provides the opportunity.

Twelve concerts, ranging from a solo violin partita to the St Matthew Passion, in several different venues, present a comprehensive range of Bach’s output. For this, the sixth Johann Sebastian Bach Journey, we have assembled artists and ensembles who are world leaders in performance of the repertoire.

The distances travelled are quite small, but the event is emphatically a journey. It starts, as Bach did, in the little towns and cities of the principality of Thuringia and finishes, again like Bach, in the free city of Leipzig. The audience stays in hotels in three places, Mühlhausen, Weimar and Leipzig, and the concerts take place here and in four other towns.

Admission to the concerts is exclusive to those who take a complete package which includes hotels, flights from the UK, coach travel, most dinners and lectures. Except in Mühlhausen, where the only hotels are of 3-star standard, a range of hotels from 3-star to 5-star is offered.

TESTIMONIALS
The programming was superb, and the performances, without exception, were wonderful. 
It was indeed a real journey, and one I felt privileged to be a part of. 
I enjoyed every concert and thought it was an absolute privilege to hear the music played on original instruments. I shall never forget the Bach tour! 
First tour with MRT and satisfied my intellectual craving and comfortable!
Very high standard enhanced by venues and growing understanding of the significance of the pieces to the development of Bach's own musical journey.
