James Ehnes & NACO: Bach Concerti

Grammy Award-winning violinist and long-time Chamberfriend James Ehnes opens Chamberfest with a blockbuster, leading the NAC orchestra’s final concert of the season with a program of Bach’s violin concertos. Hot off the heels of recording, Ehnes and the orchestra are ready to bring you an intimate performance at its peak. These beloved works, delivered by some of Canada’s favourite musicians, are sure to inspire with James, a musician with “stunning virtuosity, serene lyricism and unfaltering musicality,” at the helm. Besides Ehnes, soloists include Luc Beauséjour (harpsichord), Joanna G’froerer (flute), and Chip Hamann (oboe).
