Pacific Baroque Series: TON KOOPMAN, ORGAN

Ton Koopman, one of the foremost interpreters of Baroque music - especially of Bach - returns to Victoria for a solo recital on the Cathedral’s mighty Wolff instrument, built specifically for this repertoire.

Antonius "Ton" Koopman is widely regarded as one the finest organists, harpsichordists and conductors of our time. By his twenties, he was already carving a musical niche for himself in which he would rise to become one of the world’s most prominent performers in the early music movement. He founded his first Baroque orchestra in 1966, followed by an exuberant career (40 years and counting) of performance, conducting, and scholarship.
