Morning Tea & Concert 4: Bach in the Dark

Bach in the Dark

Bach in the Dark is a series of unconventional chamber music concerts curated by cellist Rachel Scott. After a moment in a country classroom she wondered if she could design a concert where the audience is totally ‘in the moment’ with the performers. Concerts are deliberately informal and as much about the joy of music-making as it is the music featured.

Rachel is delighted to be at Baroquefest, with one of her favourite musicians, the legendary David Pereira, who is adored by Australian audiences! The program will include works by J.S. Bach, a piece written especially for the concert by David Pereira, and duos by Boccherini and Offenbach.

If you’ve been to a concert with David and Rachel before you’ll know that you’re in for a night of great musical conversation! A critic said that Rachel and David’s playing “has the feel of a celebration, of untempered, free and loose-limbed music-making, where lines are shaped by boldness…”
