Tim Crouch's 'My Musik'

Gustav Holst: The Planets. This was what got me hooked to "classical" music. Exciting, dramatic, colourful harmonies, meditative— The Planets had it all for me.

Will Johnson's 'My Musik'

Beethoven: Missa solemnis in D major, Op. 123 / Symphonies Nos. 3 & 9. While studying in Germany, a group of singers aged 18 to 32 gathered in Überlingen to study and perform various works by Beethoven. We rehearsed for several weeks both the chorus of Fidelio and the almost unsingable Missa Solemnis.

Julia Wedman's 'My Musik'

Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto in D Major (Jascha Heifetz with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by John Barbirolli, 1937). When we were kids, my sister Naomi and I used to dance around the house to this recording.

A View from the Orchestra – what our musicians are thinking about Baroque Austria: Salzburg and Vienna

Baroque Austria: Salzburg and Vienna is Tafelmusik’s first concert at our newly revitalized home venue, Trinity-St. Paul’s Centre, Jeanne Lamon Hall. We are looking forward to showing off our new space, but also to introducing you to some rarely-heard, and really quite exciting, music. Guest directed by the German/Argentinian violinist Manfredo Kraemer, this concert includes music by Fux, Biber, Schmelzer, Rittler, and Muffat.
