In the days of Courtly Love, troubadours never travelled without their tumblers and jugglers. David Greilsammer and the Geneva Camerata have used this fact to justify a zany collaboration with the Compagnie des Objets Volants and five members of its circus troupe.

This is actually a stroke of genius. The two teams will deliver double the talent, ingenuity and mischief to make the music trip along in the most colourful way possible. Although the combination of bows and clubs is a show in itself, just wait until you see the jugglers join in the conducting and perform their very own version of the famous Prelude in C major by Johann Sebastian Bach.
