Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra:
‘JS Bach: The Circle of Creation’
Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra is “one of the world’s top orchestras” (Gramophone). Hosted by the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra, they present JS Bach: The Circle of Creation — a celebration of the genius of Bach and the latest multi-media creation by Alison Mackay, the creator of phenomenally successful Tafelmusik productions seen around the world.
JS Bach: The Circle of Creation combines text, music, and stunning projected video and images to explore the world of the artisans — papermakers, violin carvers, string spinners, and performers — who helped JS Bach realize his musical genius. This all-Bach programme is performed by Tafelmusik musicians entirely from memory.
JS Bach: The Circle of Creation blends 21st-century technology with an exploration of the tradition and skill of old world craftspeople and artisans. Like its predecessors The Galileo Project and House of Dreams, Mackay’s latest creation redefines the concert experience.†
Tafelmusik, Canada’s award-winning period instrument orchestra, was founded in 1979 and has long been renowned in North America and internationally for its distinct, exhilarating and soulful performances. It has excelled equally in music ranging from the baroque and classical eras and beyond, including adventurous cross-cultural reinventions of baroque classics.
