For this performance, the ACO will expand its forces, and also showcase another outstanding signature work, Beethoven’s mighty Violin Concerto.
It has been some 25 years since Richard Tognetti gave his first performance of the Beethoven Violin Concerto with the ACO back in 1993, and he last performed it with the Orchestra 11 years ago.
It’s long overdue, but as ever, entirely worth the wait and it’s our choice for the climactic finale to the 2018 season. It promises to leave you exhilarated, rejuvenated and ready for 2019.
★★★★★ “The expanded ACO achieved revealing clarity that gleamed like the colours of an old master newly restored… a brisk, energised performance that rode its turbulent waves with magnificent unanimity of vision and expressive force.”
– Sydney Morning Herald
“Tempos pushed to the limits, the first movement opened with blistering force and sweeping forward with breathless impatience.”
– The Australian
“This was the stuff of dreams.”
“This was a concert that will be long remembered for the reverence with which Tognetti approached the monumental musical works and the immense joy generated by the Australian Chamber Orchestra and its distinguished international guest musicians.”
