BACH TRANSCRIPTIONS: VICTORIA BAROQUE PLAYERS
Thursday August 10, 2017 | 1:00 PM
Christ Church Cathedral
Sensuality, playfulness, joy and energy burst forth in a feast of counterpoint that manifests the workings of Bach’s beautiful mind. The unique collection of trio sonatas for organ BWV 525-530 is largely Bach’s reworking of some of his favourite – now mostly lost – instrumental compositions. Victoria Baroque Players chamber ensemble will play these sublime sonatas re-transcribed for varied combinations of instruments.
This concert will be followed by a free screening of Martin Luther at 4pm. The 109 minute documentary will explore how one man reluctantly took on the most powerful institution of his day and won. Martin Luther is credited with expounding a new vision of man’s relationship with authority.
