The Reef is a celebration of surfing, film and live music by the Australian Chamber Orchestra.
ACO artistic director and lead violin, Richard Tognetti, collaborated with producer/director Mick Sowry and director of photography Jon Frank, to create an evocation of an epic stretch of coastline in the north west of Western Australia. Using a mythic day to symbolise our lives in all their trials and glory, The Reef music consists of twenty one individual compositions, some original, some amongst the greatest works in the classical tradition.
This preview features Vocalise by Rachmaninov and explores heroic failure - a simple yet beautiful representation of the inescapable part of our lives where all does not go to plan, and the honour in trying again and again.
