Arion Orchestre Baroque

Founded in 1981 in Montreal, Arion Orchestre Baroque is now a cornerstone in the world of early music on period instruments in Quebec and Canada. The clarity and freshness of Arion’s interpretations have been remarked upon since its first concerts; the delicacy of its readings of well-chosen and varied works has never wavered in more than 35 years.

Flutes and oboes join with strings and the best voices in Arion Baroque Orchestra’s presentation of three wonderful Bach cantatas. Here, as in all his music, Bach manages with sublime musical science and sensitivity to express eternity on a human scale. A truly inspiring experience.
