And we got a virtuoso to play it for us
A huge congratulations to Bethany Hirst for taking the winning shot of Bach on his summer holidays.
This Is Bach the Dog in an old cannon used for defence at the Needles New Battery on the Isle Of Wight.
Bethany’s photo was chosen from among 223 photos sent to The Classic FM Foundation and passed through 3 stages of judging before being chosen by Alfie Boe as the final winner of the Well Tempered Traveller Competition.
Alfie said about Bach:
"Bach the Dog has been the bug-bear of my life recently!! This picture sums up exactly what I have wanted to do with him since he came into my life, back stage at Les Miserables.... only joking, but hilarious photo especially when you were asked to shoot Bach the Dog!! It’s the winner for me. Alfie x"
