Upcoming | Bach: Original and Arranged with Dr. Hannah French and Ivars Taurins

Dr. Hannah French and Ivars Taurins

The Listening Club is a relaxed environment for keen listeners to learn more about baroque topics, familiar or unfamiliar with Tafelmusik.

This season Tafelmusik has performed the music of J.S. Bach in both original and newly-arranged versions. Bach of course was no stranger to making arrangements himself, whether of his own works, or those of his contemporaries. There have been some intensely creative re-workings of Bach's music throughout history, but what's your opinion on meddling with his melodies? In this listening club pilot session, we'll hear and debate works re-imagined for modern ears.
