Celebrate the great Baroque composer over three morning sessions with lyric fm broadcaster Tim Thurston.

Celebrate the great Baroque composer Johann Sebastian Bach over three morning sessions with lyric fm broadcaster Tim Thurston.

Back to Bach: Monday morning music will see Tim return to share his lifelong passion of Bach's music as part of this illuminating and rousing three-part series.

The German musician is best known for such instrumental compositions as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations, along with vocal music like the St Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor.

Following the 19th-century Bach Revival he has gone on to be regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time, and Thurston's love for his life and work is no secret. Join him as he tells his story, considers his enormous influence on music of many sorts and plays excerpts from some of his glorious compositions.

Secure your place by booking for each of the three sessions in advance.
