History & Mission:

Journeying to the places where J.S. 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 8 concerts is exclusive to those who take a complete package which includes hotels, flights from the UK, private coaches, dinners and lectures.

Journeying to the places where J.S. 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.
Eight concerts in 8 different venues present a comprehensive range of J.S. Bach’s output, alongside works by other contemporaries and predecessors. For 2013, the 5th J.S. Bach Journey, Martin Randall Travel has 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 different places, Mühlhausen, Weimar and Leipzig, and the concerts take place here and in three other towns.
Admission to the concerts is exclusive to those who take a complete package which includes hotels, flights from the UK, private coaches, dinners and lectures.
