Bach Collegium Japan – Bach, Handel, Vivaldi

SUN DECEMBER 9 2018 3PM
Chan Shun Concert Hall

Presented by Early Music Vancouver

Hailed in BBC Music Magazine as “Kings from the East,” Bach Collegium Japan comprises a baroque orchestra and choir that is widely recognized as one of world’s leading interpreters of J.S. Bach and his contemporaries. Its inspirational Music Director Masaaki Suzuki founded Bach Collegium Japan in 1990 to introduce the Japanese audience to period instrument performances of great works from the baroque period.

For this concert the ensemble has invited acclaimed British soprano Joanne Lunn for a program including J.S Bach’s Orchestral Suite no 2, Vivaldi’s Concerto for two violins in D Minor and Handel’s virtuosic cantata for soprano Silete Venti.

 

Offering a dazzling array of concerts and workshops, Early Music Vancouver presents one of the foremost early music concert series in North America. Each year a number of Early Music Vancouver events take place in the Chan Shun Concert Hall and the Telus Studio Theatre.
