TAFELMUSIK: BACH AND HIS WORLD
Musica Viva, touring nationally, May 19-June 4
Canada’s Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra brings more than the music of JS Bach on this national tour, taking in Perth, Melbourne, Canberra, Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney. The ensemble draws the audience into the composer’s world using period instruments and research into contemporary artisanship – papermakers, violin carvers, string spinners and performers – in a performance that also incorporates spoken word and projected video and images. The program includes the Brandenburg Concerto no 3, Orchestral Suite no 1 in C major and excerpts from the Goldberg Variations.
