Contemplating Life, The Universe, and everything

On Tuesday 20th November I sat in St George’s Hall, Bristol listening to Angela Hewitt play Part 1 of Bach’s 48. As she played I was transported to another place by the depth and quality of the compositions – and there one was able to contemplate the real meaning of it all, spellbound by music written over 280 years ago.
The more baroque music I hear, the better the experience gets, the more dimensions there are. It was an amazing evening – very wet, awful traffic, but made life changing by music and performer with special qualities.
