Win tickets to the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra’s – Bach and the Frenchman


Bach and the Frenchman is Bach at his trailblazing best! With three soloists – violin, flute and harpsichord – Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No 5 is a stunner, particularly when the harpsichord breaks away from the pack and delivers a cadenza of unprecedented length and complexity. Making his first appearance with the TSO is Baroque specialist, conductor and harpsichordist, Matthew Halls.

Appropriately, Bach’s music sits alongside works by two eminent French contemporaries, Jean-Féry Rebel and Jean-Philippe Rameau. Bach is the object of admiration in a new work by Australian composer Richard Mills, here receiving its first performance.

The program includes

Chorale Meditation on Heut’ triumphieret Gottes Sohn by J S Bach
Les élémens – Suite by Jean-Féry Rebel
Brandenburg Concerto No 5 by J S Bach
Pigmalion – Suite by Jean-Philippe Rameau
Orchestral Suite No 4 by J S Bach

Bach and the Frenchman is at the Federation Concert Hall on Thursday 17 August 2017 at 7:30 pm.
