The Four Seasons
Australian Chamber Orchestra's ACO Collective
Birds sing, peasants dance, thunder rolls and snow falls in what is the Baroque era’s most captivating and virtuosic music. ACO Collective is a critically acclaimed, high energy string orchestra that combines Australia’s most talented emerging string players with the musicians of the internationally renowned Australian Chamber Orchestra.
Alongside Vivaldi’s beloved masterpiece, all manner of birds and beasts are unleashed in Heinrich Biber’s Sonata Representativa, and two Australian world premieres bring us vivid scenes from our side of the world: Holly Harrison’s Australian Winter and Paul Stanhope’s Giving Ground, which introduces the irresistible madness of Francesco Geminiani’s famous La Folia variations.
Helena Rathbone, Director & Violin
“The Collective sound is exquisite and homogenous, a tribute to the musicians of the Australian Chamber Orchestra, who have sought these rare talents.”
