J.S. Bach: The Circle of Creation

J.S. Bach: The Circle of Creation
Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir

Celebrate the genius of Bach and the artisans who brought his music to life.

“In these hands, Bach’s music feels more alive than ever.” – The Globe and Mail

Alison Mackay’s acclaimed J.S. Bach: The Circle of Creation returns, following its premiere performances in 2014/15. This multimedia 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 J.S. Bach realize his musical genius. Don’t miss your opportunity to see this all-Bach program, performed entirely from memory, before it tours to Australia!

J.S. 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, this presentation redefines the concert experience.
