Johann Sebastian Bach is Baroque music’s superstar, and one of the most influential composers in the history of classical music. And Alexander Weimann is perhaps Canada’s top harpsichordist/conductor, praised as “ultra-capable” (Vancouver Sun) with “extraordinary insight” (The Globe and Mail). Experience these two creative forces with Symphony Nova Scotia in this beautiful all-Bach concert, featuring highlights like the majestic Brandenburg Concerto No. 6 and the delightful Suite No. 3 – including the achingly beautiful Air (transcribed as Air on the G String), one of the most famous pieces of music ever written.
