Horatio Clare

Winter Wayfaring

Winter Weekend 2018, 

In his extraordinary travelogue Something of his Art: Walking to Lübeck with J S Bach, Clare recreates the walk that J S Bach, then an unknown composer and organ teacher, made in the depths of winter in 1705 across Germany to Lübeck. This was the pivotal point in the young composer’s life, when he began his journey to becoming the master of the Baroque. Clare’s second 2018 publication is The Light in The Dark: a moving and lyrical evocation of a British winter and the feelings it inspires. The writer raises a torch against the darkness, illuminating the blackest corners of the season, and delving into memory and myth to explore the powerful hold that winter has on us. Chaired by Dylan Moore.

The Ordinary Virtues: Moral Order in a Divided World

These ordinary virtues are the moral system of global cities and obscure shantytowns alike. A novelist and historian, Ignatieff is Rector and President of Central European University in Budapest.
