Jean-Baptiste Lully Excerpts from Phaeton, Ouverture [FULL AUDIO]


“The musical performance, through it all, was of the highest order … bursts of virtuosity were too widespread and numerous to list.” 
- The New York Times  (on the live concert of The Galileo Project)

DVD and CD Soundtrack:  

Explore the fusion of the arts, science and culture in the 17th and 18th centuries in this imaginative DVD and CD commemorating Galileo's first public demonstration of the telescope. The Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra performs music by Monteverdi, Vivaldi, Bach and Handel to a backdrop of high-definition images from the Hubble telescope, NASA and Canadian astronomers. Actor Shaun Smyth narrates a compelling script and the musicians, playing by memory, weave in and around a magical stage set. The Galileo Project was created, programmed  and scripted by Alison Mackay, and filmed by the international award-winning 90th Parallel Productions.   BONUS FEATURES:  The DVD includes two bonus tracks of original animated films of Tafelmusik by director David New, and the package also includes a music-only CD soundtrack of the gorgeous baroque music featured in the film.
