Experience the meeting place of baroque art and music on this magical journey to five European homes where works by Bach, Handel, Vivaldi, and Marais are performed against a backdrop of paintings by Vermeer, Canaletto and Watteau.
Tafelmusik, Canada’s award-winning period instrument orchestra, was founded in 1979 and has long been renowned in North America and internationally for its distinct, exhilarating and soulful performances. It has excelled equally in music ranging from the baroque and classical eras and beyond, including adventurous cross-cultural reinventions of baroque classics.
