Gilles Cantagrel is the author of a wonderful novel entitled La rencontre à Lübeck – Encounter in Lübeck – which is based on historical facts and relates the meeting between the young Johann Sebastian Bach and Dieterich Buxtehude in Lübeck. Excerpts of the novel will be interspersed with musical examples by both composers which illustrate the stages of this memorable episode. Among other works, you will hear the chorale Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland from both Buxtehude and Bach, as well as Buxtehude’s Passacaglia in D minor and Bach’s Passacaglia in C minor, inspired by Buxtehude’s masterpiece.
