Tognetti's Beethoven - Australian Chamber Orchestra

Tognetti's Beethoven

8 - 21 November 2018


BEETHOVEN Violin Concerto in D major
BEETHOVEN Symphony No.5 in C minor


Richard Tognetti Director & Violin

Hum ‘Da Da Da Duuuuum’ out loud, and most people will realise you’re channelling the great Ludwig van Beethoven, such is the power and ubiquity of the first four notes of his Fifth Symphony.

For this performance, the ACO will expand its forces, and also showcase another outstanding signature work, Beethoven’s mighty Violin Concerto. 

It has been some 25 years since Richard Tognetti gave his first performance of the Beethoven Violin Concerto with the ACO back in 1993, and he last performed it with the Orchestra 11 years ago. 

It’s long overdue, but as ever, entirely worth the wait and it’s our choice for the climactic finale to the 2018 season. It promises to leave you exhilarated, rejuvenated and ready for 2019.
