Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestrareturn to Australia with an enthralling new show and an exciting new Music Director and lead violin, Elisa Citterio. In Bach and His World, they draw on spoken word, stunning projected video and detailed images as well as their speciality in period instrument performance to bring an extra layer of meaning to this great music.
