In Bach Violin Concertos, Richard Tognetti presents his triple ARIA-award winning vision of the composer's violin works - an exploration of the soulful beauty and timeless genius of arguably the greatest composer of all time.  

In this concert tour, Principal Violinists Helena Rathbone and Satu Vänskä join Richard to take on some of the most beloved concertos for violin: the Concerto for Two Violins in D minor and the Concerto for Three Violins in D major. 

Also in the program, ACO Principal Cello Timo-Veikko 'Tipi' Valve treats us to Bach's Sarabande from the composer's popular Cello Suite No.4 in E-flat major.

Explore below these and other works featured in the concert program, ahead of the national tour.
