Explore the fusion of arts, science and culture in the 17th and 18th centuries in this imaginative all-Bach program, performed by Tafelmusik musicians entirely from memory.
Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra is thrilled to present J.S. Bach: The Circle of Creation: a celebration of the genius of Bach and the latest multi-media creation by Alison Mackay, the creator of phenomenally successful Tafelmusik productions seen around the world including The Galileo Project and House of Dreams.
J.S. Bach: The Circle of Creation blends 21st-century technology with an exploration of the tradition and skill of old world craftspeople and artisans. Like its predecessors The Galileo Project and House of Dreams, Mackay’s latest creation redefines the concert experience.
“In these hands, Bach’s music feels more alive than ever.” The Globe and Mail
“…the latest production in Tafelmusik’s growing multimedia catalog is interesting, charming, and smoothly put together. Let’s hope there are more to come.” Classical Voice America
