Australian Chamber Orchestra

Acclaimed for its vibrant, stylish delivery, the Australian Chamber Orchestra is an ensemble like no other. 

Acclaimed for its vibrant, stylish delivery, the Australian Chamber Orchestra is an ensemble like no other. Its performers stand to play, giving the orchestra the huge sense of energy that defines its elegance and verve. Violinist Richard Tognetti is the driving force behind the orchestra and it is his dramatic orchestral arrangement of Grieg’s heartfelt String Quartet that forms the concert’s climax.

In a typically eclectic programme, the orchestra also reaches back to the daring expressivity of CPE Bach’s String Symphony in B flat, and explores two modern masterworks: the bewitching soundscape of Scelsi’s Anagamin, and Peteris Vasks’s beautifully meditative Vox amoris, written specially for the ACO with Tognetti as the soloist.
