Bach and His World
Feb 17-22, 2016
Who are the baroque craftsmen who helped J.S. Bach realize his genius? From the moment that Bach was inspired to create a new orchestral work, he required the talents and labour of dozens of artisans and performers to bring his music to life.  Bach and His World is a performance of stunning works by Bach, including Sinfonias from BWV 249a and BWV 11, the Third Brandenburg Concerto, and excerpts from the First Orchestral Suite.  Our performance of instrumental works by Bach explores the fascinating personalities who carved violins, hand pulled brass harpsichord strings and tapped pine trees for the resin that would set gut strings into vibration. The concert is a guide to the craft of baroque performance and a celebration of all those who helped J.S. Bach realize his genius and create the musical legacy which still reverberates in our world today.  Bach and His World is offered in evening performance and school concert formats.
