The music was sublime and the experience unique in Tafelmusik’s one off performance of The Galileo Project for this year’s Perth International Arts Festival (PIAF). Tafelmusik is a Baroque Orchestra hailing from Canada, their approach to performance is refreshing and stimulating, with a stage presence more akin to rock music than an orchestra. Performers walk around the stage, interact, challenge and flirt with each other, but more they leave the stage and play in the aisles and from the balconies. At one point it was like musical chairs, when the music stopped the person at the front of the stage played the lead in the next piece. Throughout the performance images are shown on a large round screen at the back of the stage.
