Vancouver Bach Festival
July 26-August 6, 2022
Scottish Baroque & Other Traditions
This year's Bach Festival explores new territory by fusing Scottish traditional music with Baroque masters. It is well known that J.S.
Bach employed instrumentalists for his church performances who often also played in taverns. We also know that Baroque dance-forms, such as the gavotte and gigue (jig), were born in country dances which were reimagined by composers of the time for courtly circles. Hear how traditional melodies weave throughout the concerts at a variety of locations ranging from a cathedral to traditional concert halls, from a botanic garden to a Celtic pub with musicians from as far afield as Glasgow, New York, Montreal and Portland as well as many from closer to home. Meet the 2022 Artists-In-Residence David Greenberg (Canada/USA) & David McGuinness (Scotland). Events include:
