Buxtehude Essentials

About this playlist

Dietrich Buxtehude was one of the most striking composers of the North-German Baroque. Even in his own lifetime, he achieved widespread fame as one of the greatest organists alive, and his skill at improvising was unmatched. In fact, a young Johann Sebastian Bach was so keen to hear him that he undertook a 400 kilometre journey across Germany on foot! See if you can hear what so enchanted Bach in this playlist.
