ACO2 Tour WA
3 - 13 April 2014
Helena Rathbone Director
& Lead Violin
Featuring works thoughtfully selected to commemorate the ANZAC Day centenary, this concert includes music by Australian composers Peter Sculthorpe and Fredrick Septimus Kelly. Kelly's touching Elegy was written in 1915 in his tent at Gallipoli. The work is a tribute to poet and fallen soldier Rupert Brooke.
Also on the program, a brilliant Bach Violin Concerto starring Helena Rathbone on her 1759 Guadagnini violin.
AO connects the next generation of
talented young Australian musicians with the stars of the Australian Chamber Orchestra,
creating a combined ensemble with a fresh, energetic performance style. Don’t
miss this chance to hear musicians from Australia’s most dynamic and critically
acclaimed orchestra performing with the stars of the future.
