During his national concert tour with the ACO, Ilya Gringolts steps away from the Orchestra for one night only in an intimate solo recital.

Presented in the round at ACO Pier 2/3 in Sydney, this is a unique chance to get up close with one of the world’s greatest violinists as he presents timeless Baroque music by Bach and his contemporaries.
