A performance of JS Bach’s music is an individual journey into an inner universe of mystery and magnificence. Constellations of chords rush to become vast galaxies of sound surging with Bach’s eternal creative energy. Each work is an infinite cosmic expanse to explore.
In this concert, single musicians will arrive one by one onto a darkened stage beneath a brilliant column of light to offer an intimate vision of Bach’s celestial instrumental works. The stage will gradually become illuminated with musicians joining in Paul Dyer’s expansive all-Bach pasticcio.
In his Australian debut, radiant German Baroque violinist Jonas Zschenderlein will lead the orchestra in an incandescent performance of Bach’s Violin Concerto in E major. This all-Bach concert culminates with Jonas guest-directing the genius composer's enveloping Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major in a period instrument performance which must not be missed.
