Buxtehude and the Younger Generation

Dieterich Buxtehude must have been a very inspiring guy, to quote Ton Koopman. The story goes that Bach walked 300 miles to learn from Buxtehude, and Handel made sure to visit him in Lübeck as well. We'll hear music by Buxtehude, plus two young composers who imitated him: Nikolaus Bruhns and J.S. Bach. We'll also hear from Johann Christian Schieferdecker, who succeeded Buxtehude as organist of St. Mary's, Lübeck.
