Aiko Goto Guest Director


ACO2 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.

In this concert, ACO2 performs some of the best music for string orchestra from the Baroque, Romantic and contemporary eras. Bach’s sprightly Brandenburg Concerto No.3 is one of the most popular pieces in classical music. Russian composer Igor Stravinsky's elegant concerto has been choreographed several times as a ballet. Dvořák’s Serenade, full of flowing melodies and wistful waltzes, is a delight. Meale’s Cantilena features a long, lyrical line for solo violin. Rising young British composer Tarik O’Regan has already received two Grammy nominations.

Don’t miss this chance to hear musicians from Australia’s most dynamic and critically acclaimed orchestra performing with the stars of the future.

Thank you so much for performing in St.Helens last night.  My companions and I were thrilled by your efforts.  I thought the program was well put together.I particularly enjoyed the pieces by O'Regan and Meale.  I couldn't help thinking how fortunate we were to hear you in such a small hall where your gorgeous sound leapt off the stage and filled the room.  I hope you enjoy your Tasmanian tour. I will be encouraging my friends in other parts of the island to try and catch your performance.
