Attraction details
Reviewed November 21, 2014

For thiose who enjoy the music of the Barque period, Bach, Vivaldi, Handel, Telemann, and many more, Tafelmusik will provide a fabulous treat at a reasonable price. They perform about one week a month during the winter and spring at Trinity St Paul's. This old church has been extensively renovated and the acoustics and comfort much improved over the last couple of years.

Not only do they give historically informed perfomances, they also have developed many innovative ways of presenting this glorious music in ways that appeal to all the senses and draw from more than just the western European tradition.

Their box office is open every day and late on concert evenings. You can usually get tickets even at the last minute and it would be a great experience to see and hear one of Toronto's cultural gems.

Tafelmusik is known to be one of the best baroque orchestras in the world, and it has been at or close to the top of the musical heap in Toronto for years. Until this year, however, the facility it used, Trinity-St. Paul's Church on Bloor Street near Spadina, did the orchestra and its listeners few favours. The acoustics were less than optimum, the church benches were uncomfortable, the space itself was dowdy. Last week witnessed the first concert since major renovations took place during the summer. At last the venue seems to be worthy of the orchestra, both visually and aurally. What's more, the new seats are a huge improvement! The programme of lesser known works of the Austrian baroque, with Argentinian violinist Manfredo Kraemer as the leader of the band, was wonderful. Bravo Tafelmusik!
