Australian Chamber Orchestra ‘Bach and Beyond’ series premiers this March 2021

Bach Beyond

For those who missed the February instalment of Rapture and Revolution by the Australian Chamber Orchestra, then never fear, there’s a March instalment on its way that showcases the incredible work of one of time’s most illustrious composers

Titled Bach and the Beyond on 31 March 2021 and directed by Matisse Ruby with cinematography by Tyson Perkins, the second film includes a performance from the world’s greatest living flautist Emmanuel Pahud.

Recorded during his time in lockdown in Berlin, it’ll make for a rare opportunity to see international and Australian musicians performing music together remotely, as part of ACO’s inaugural 2021 digital season.

At a time when we are all grappling with finding trust in this new world and hope for the future, it is astonishing how relevant Bach remains. This evocative and impassioned concert film pitches Bach’s timeless search for redemption alongside compositions by Richard Tognetti, elevated by the mesmerising vocals of Satu Vänskä*.
