A performance of JS Bach’s music is a journey into an inner universe of magnificent mystery. 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 set with a theatrical narration that explores Bach’s extraordinary life.

Returning to Australia for his first live performance, sensational German Baroque violinist Jonas Zschenderlein will lead the orchestra in a radiant 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.
