Description: Who are the baroque craftsmen who helped J.S. Bach realize his genius? From the moment that Bach was inspired to create a new orchestral work, he required the talents and labour of dozens of artisans and performers to bring his music to life. Bach and His World is a performance of stunning works by Bach, including Sinfonias from BWV 249a, the Third Brandenburg Concerto and excerpts from the Goldberg Variations. These instrumental works by Bach explore the fascinating personalities who carved violins, hand pulled brass harpsichord strings and tapped pine trees for the resin that would set gut strings into vibration. The concert is a guide to the craft of baroque performance and a celebration of all those who helped J.S. Bach realize his genius and create the musical legacy which still reverberates in our world today.
