In this evening of Meditation and Music you will have the pleasure of hearing Luise Buchberger — Principal cellist of The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment — play three of Bach's solo suites on her early 18th century cello built by Giacomo Gavelli. This will be followed by a short period of meditation which will allow you time to assimilate what you have heard, and calm your mind before she plays the pieces again. 

This rare opportunity to listen to the music and then absorb it by meditating in the following twenty minutes of silence will give you time to discern subtleties and nuances, differences and connections which might not have been apparent the first time.

If you are not a meditator you will be given easy to understand instructions and simple guidance.

This enlightening evening is one of a series exploring the heightening and enriching of a particular sense through the power of meditation.
