Celebrate the genius of Bach, and the stories behind his inspiration. 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.
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.
“In these hands, Bach’s music feels more alive than ever.” – The Globe and Mail
