Bach A theatrical pasticcio of solo and chamber works
Bach Violin Concerto in E major, BWV 1042 
Bach Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major, BWV 1068 

Paul Dyer AO Artistic Director, harpsichord 
Jonas Zschenderlein (Frankfurt) Baroque violin 
Australian Brandenburg Orchestra 

A performance of JS Bach's music elicits a journey into an inner universe of mystery and magnificence. Constellations of chords rush to become vast galaxies of sound surging with Bach's creative energy. Each work is an infinite cosmic expanse to explore.

In this concert, musicians will arrive one by one onto a darkened stage, as silhouettes illuminated by single columns of light. Growing from solo to larger chamber works, the pasticcio will climax with celestial force in Paul Dyer's personal tribute to Johann Sebastian Bach.

Radiant German Baroque violinist Jonas Zschenderlein will guest star in his Australian debut performance of Bach's Violin Concerto in E major. This all-Bach concert culminates with Jonas guest-directing the enveloping Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major in a period instrument performance not to be missed.
