The great writer and humanist Douglas Adams spoke often of his obsession with Bach. Indeed in his novel Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency he explains the actual source of Bach’s masterpieces and how only time travel rescued them from oblivion.

‘I’m convinced that Bach is the greatest genius who ever walked among us, and the Brandenburgs are what he wrote when he was happy.’ Douglas Adams

Geoffrey McGivern (The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Back) joins the Feinstein Ensemble and the Art of Moog for a dramatic recreation of Douglas Adams’ wonderful Dirk Gently, a novel that depicts an alternate reality where only time travel can rescue Bach’s masterpieces from oblivion.
