Description

The stars aligned in 2015 to produce two landmark anniversaries in a single year for one of Australia’s most important cultural institutions. In that year, the Australian Chamber Orchestra celebrated its 40th birthday, and Richard Tognetti marked 25 years as its Director.

Richard has brought charisma and amazing energy to his leadership of the ACO. In the pages of this prestige book you will find him and his ACO comrades captured in pictures and in their own words, on stage, in rehearsal, and in their private lives.

This package includes a large-format deluxe book released in a limited single-run edition of 1000 copies only. It also includes a new double CD retrospective of ABC Classics’ best ACO recordings, with a previously unreleased work.

Prices include postage, packaging and handling charges for all Australian addresses.
