Tafelmusik performs the music of Monteverdi. Vivaldi, Bach and Handel against a backdrop of high-definition images from the Hubble telescope and Canadian astronomers. the Galileo Project features music, poetic narration and choreography. (Alison Mackay: concept, script and programme)

"That the musical performance, through it all, was of the highest order hardly needs saying... the bursts of virtuosity were too widespread and numerous to list. But what was truly remarkable, for a band of 17 playing a kaleidoscopic variety of repertory, was that it was all done from memory." — Boston Music Intelligence
