#ACO2023 Season

#ACO2023 Season

Embrace the adventure and take the leap.

Wise wooden instruments. Horsehair and rosin. Handmade and bespoke. Craftsmanship that is both ancient and brand new. The sound of instruments tuning backstage. The murmur of voices and laughter from the foyers. Our footsteps as we walk out onto the stage. The inhale – from musicians and audience – before the first note. Unexplored and unexpected sound worlds. Beloved masterpieces heard anew. The thrill of live music. Closer than ever before.

Australian Chamber Orchestra - Chopin and the Mendelssohns

Chopin and the Mendelssohns

Presented by Australian Chamber Orchestra

Pianist Polina Leschenko joins the ACO for a program full of brilliant music-making, deep emotions and profound connections.

Polina Leschenko's deep affinity with Chopin is a rare gift; so too is her remarkable rapport with Richard Tognetti and the ACO.

Polina makes a long-awaited return to the Orchestra with one of the most beloved Romantic works for piano and orchestra, Chopin's Piano Concerto No.2.
The second movement has the exquisite beauty of his later nocturnes and was inspired by unrequited love.

Chopin's close friend Felix Mendelssohn brings Polina and Richard together in a Double Concerto abundant in individual displays of dazzling bravura from both soloists.
This exceptional program closes with the energy and inventiveness of Fanny Mendelssohn's string quartet, arranged by Richard Tognetti.

Brilliant music-making, deep emotions and profound connections take 2023 out on a high.
