It’s said that in the winter of 1705, a twenty-year old J.S. Bach traveled over 260 miles on foot to see the organist and composer Dietrich Buxtehude perform in Lubeck, on the Baltic Coast of Germany. The students of the 2014 Bach Institute may not have come to us on foot, but they metaphorically followed in young Johann’s footsteps when they flew and drove through not one, but two polar vortices to immerse themselves in the music of Bach, guided by a seasoned and distinguished faculty in our own snowy coastal city of Boston.
