ACO Up Close

ACO Up Close: Intimate Bach & Pärt

The exquisite music of Baroque master JS Bach and Estonian modernist Arvo Pärt reach across nearly three centuries to fuse in this unmissable evening of heavenly music.

This performance takes place at ACO Pier 2/3 in Sydney and Melbourne Recital Centre in Melbourne.

The exquisite music of Baroque master JS Bach and Estonian modernist Arvo Pärt reach across nearly three centuries to fuse in this unmissable evening of heavenly music.

Artistic Director Richard Tognetti and ACO Principal Cello Timo-Veikko Valve are joined on the Neilson stage by British keyboardist Chad Kelly for a selection of the composers’ timeless and uplifting music, including Pärt’s Fratres, and Bach’s Cello Suite No.3.

Bach’s astonishingly contemporary Baroque music is the perfect pairing with Pärt’s uniquely timeless minimalist aesthetic: expect celestial heights and superlative beauty in an immersive and intimate setting.

This recital will feature a conversation with the artists, hosted by Ce Benedict.
