To open their season Music In The Round make a return trip to the Chatsworth Estate to celebrate a musical genius, the magnificence of the local countryside, churches… and tea!
Inspired by the life-changing 250-mile journey the 20 year-old J.S. Bach made on foot to hear the revered composer Dieterich Buxtehude play the organ, we invite you to walk between two beautiful churches to hear glorious music by Bach, a composer who inspired him and by composers who he profoundly influenced. If you prefer, you may join us for just the final performance.
