Matthew Truscott Guest Director & Violin
ACO Collective

Matthew Truscott, who was recently appointed concertmaster of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and is also one of the Leaders of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, will be the guest director of ACO Collective’s second tour.

Truscott has chosen to explore the many facets of the Concerto Grosso for his first tour with the ACO. The program features music by Corelli, Vivaldi, Bach and Stravinsky, with Bach’s Third Brandenburg Concerto among one of the finest examples ever of concerto grosso writing, which allows the orchestra to enjoy moments of individual brilliance as soloists. 

Interwoven with this is music by Shostakovich’s Soviet successor, Sofia Gubaidulina, and the Hungarian György Kurtág whose musical lineage traces from Bartók through to Webern and Stravinsky.
