EMV’S 2017 VANCOUVER BACH FESTIVAL
August 1, 2017 - August 11, 2017
Early Music Vancouver presents the return of the Vancouver Bach Festival, August 1–11, 2017 in the heart of the city at Christ Church Cathedral. Following the success of last summer’s inaugural festival, EMV offers a remarkable 14 concerts and features guest artists from all over the world. Inspired by the 500th Anniversary of Martin Luther’s Protestant Reformation, this year’s festival celebrates music’s supreme ability to convert, transform, and persuade.
Highlight concerts include Matt Haimovitz’s intriguing new perspective on Bach’s Cello Suites in Overtures to Bach; the Vancouver premiere of The Fountains of Israel, a relatively unknown masterpiece by composer Johann Schein; and a stirring finale of Bach’s monumental St. John Passion at the Chan Centre.
