JONNY GREENWOOD Water [AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE]
BEETHOVEN Coriolan – Overture
BEETHOVEN Symphony No.1
BEETHOVEN Triple Concerto
Our recent Beethoven concerts have been reviewed with enormous enthusiasm: “[ACO] play particularly well when the fire is in their belly, and nobody puts it there like Beethoven.” (Sydney Morning Herald)
This concert features three bold Beethoven works: his majestic first foray into symphonic writing, the stormy and drama-filled Coriolan–Overture and his Triple Concerto, featuring playful dynamism between Richard Tognetti, ACO principal cellist Timo-Veikko Valve and emotionally expansive Russian pianist Yevgeny Sudbin.
We’re thrilled to premiere Water, the long-awaited new piece by acclaimed musician Jonny Greenwood. Following his latest international tour with legendary band Radiohead, Greenwood joined us in the studio writing a new work especially for us. One of the world’s greatest guitarists, Greenwood also writes great orchestral music. He composed the award-winning film score for There Will Be Blood, was composer-in-residence with the BBC Concert Orchestra and has written scores for films The Master, Norwegian Wood and We Need to Talk About Kevin.
Jonny Greenwood's Water has been written especially for the ACO, however Jonny will not be performing with the ACO in this concert tour.
