Tchaikovsky knew he had created something special when he wrote his Serenade for Strings. Achingly beautiful, it is one of our favourite works in the repertoire.

It is also a perfect partner for Pēteris Vasks’ glowing fantasia for violin and strings. Vasks wrote Vox Amoris for the unique sound of Richard and the ACO in 2008, and over the last seven years we have taken its mesmerising sound around the world. Now we bring Vox Amoris home.

Put Tchaikovsky and Vasks together with the classical invention of CPE Bach you are hearing the essence of the ACO’s sound: direct, intense, truthful. An exciting addition to the Wollongong program is Britten's Les Illuminations featuring one of Australia's most loved sopranos, Taryn Fiebig.
