Margaret Throsby & Anthony Browell

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

AC040: The Fortieth Year is a large format prestige book that beautifully captures the ACO in pictures and words throughout 2015: on stage, in rehearsal, and in their private lives. With revealing text by Margaret Throsby and deluxe photography by Anthony Browell, ACO 40 is a sumptuous souvenir of this anniversary year, offering fascinating insight into the busy lives and music making of Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra.

“It’s clear that everything the ACO does is in the service of the music.” Margaret Throsby

"I sought to take pictures which are as alluring as the ACO's music and performances." Anthony Browell
