HARRIS CENTER PRESENTS
AUSTRALIAN CHAMBER ORCHESTRA
RICHARD TOGNETTI, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR
Mon, Apr 1; 7:30 pm
The reviews say it all: “If there’s a better chamber orchestra in the world today, I haven’t heard it” (The Guardian); “The energy and vibe of a rock band with the ability of a crack classical chamber group” (Washington Post); “They don’t play New York nearly often enough. But, on the rare occasion that they do come in from Down Under, they leave an indelible mark on the city’s music scene” (TimeOut New York); “Early music doesn’t get much hipper than this” (Los Angeles Times). Performing as a flexible and versatile ‘ensemble of soloists’ on modern and period instruments, their repertoire spans six centuries and their performances are marked with a vitality and virtuosity unmatched by other ensembles: In a nod to past traditions, only the cellists are seated, and the resulting sense of energy and individuality is one of the most commented-upon elements of an ACO concert experience.
