Timeline - Virgin Australia Exclusive Preview
Richard Tognetti Director & Violin
Featuring The Presets
Ignatius Jones Director
Graham Ross Vocal Director
Concept by Richard Tognetti
In a time-bending musical odyssey through 42,000 years and over 230 songs, the ACO joins forces with electro-pop explorers The Presets in an exhilarating surge through history – forging the likes of Vivaldi, Mozart and Bach to Miles Davis, Bob Dylan and Nirvana into a joyous finale of contemporary music assembled by the ARIA Award-winning duo.
ACO Artistic Director Richard Tognetti leads this kaleidoscopic voyage featuring a vocal sextet, percussion and carefully curated recordings augmenting the strings of the ACO. This extravaganza is performed to eye-popping visual effects from the mind of Ignatius Jones. Beginning from c.40,000 BC, the program walks with you through time, through the virtuosic outpourings of the Renaissance, the Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods and finally exploding into our modern age. The classically trained Presets will make their classical music debut after three critically-acclaimed albums and their tenth anniversary celebration.
This exclusive one-hour preview concert will feature the music from 1945 to the present and will be an event not to be missed.
