Join Tafelmusik for a guided tour of baroque Europe through a colourful array of chamber works.

We’ve missed touring so much in 2020 that we decided to create a program around the idea of a virtual road trip, European baroque style! Our itinerary includes stops in 17th- and 18th-century England, Germany, France, and Italy courtesy of chamber music by some of our favourite composers. Our musicians enhance this concert with their personal travel stories from past Tafelmusik tours.

On the Road evokes a quintessentially European baroque soundscape, from the theatres of London and the courts of Germany, to the refined elegance of Paris, and the shimmering beauty of Venice. Pack your bags, book your tickets, and join us for this virtual voyage!

Single ticket buyers are able to access the concert for 48 hours from the original broadcast time.
