As a touring Orchestra, the ACO has notched up 565 concerts in 271 cities across 45 countries on 58 international tours. In 2016, ACO players will add many more stamps to their passports as Richard Tognetti takes up a prestigious position as Artist-in-Residence at the Barbican Centre’s Milton Court. The residency begins in November 2016 and will run for a few months until March 2017.

Tognetti’s residency starts with a refreshing take on the classical violin recital – Beethoven, Sculthorpe and Brahms – as he tackles the grand European classical tradition head on. For the second concert, ACO Principal Violinist Satu Vänskä joins Richard Tognetti along with electronic music students of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, for a night of electro-acoustic repertoire in an eclectic genre-bending gig where nothing is off limits.

After huge critical acclaim in 2012, 2013 and 2016 at home and abroad, The Reef returns, and this time Richard Tognetti shares this thrilling celebration of music, film and the natural world with London audiences on 11 March 2017.
