Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra presents J.S. Bach: The Circle of Creation—a celebration of the genius of Johann Sebastian Bach. It is the latest multi-media creation by Alison Mackay, the creator of phenomenally successful Tafelmusik productions seen around the world, including The Galileo Project and House of Dreams. Directed by Jeanne Lamon and narrated by Blair Williams, J.S. 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 J.S. Bach realize his musical genius.
This all-Bach program is performed by Tafelmusik musicians entirely from memory, and includes the following selections:
Brandenburg Concerto No.3 in G Major, BWV1048
Sheep may safely graze, from Cantata 208/9
Chorale Wachet auf from Cantata 42/7
Excerpts from Goldberg Variations, BWV988
Excerpts from Orchestral Suite No.1 in C Major, BWV1066
