ACO 40

The Fortieth YearAustralian Chamber Orchestra

The stars aligned in 2015 to produce two landmark anniversaries: the Australian Chamber Orchestra celebrated its 40th birthday, and Richard Tognetti marked 25 years as its Director. This tight-knit, wildly popular and often ground-breaking musical ensemble manages to satisfy the demands of the musically literate as well as concert first-timers; the demands of a punishing national touring schedule; and the demands of taking excellence in Australian music-making to the world. The ACO is recognised internationally as a world class orchestra, but it carries its burdens lightly with camaraderie, discipline and fun. Richard Tognetti has brought charisma and amazing energy to his leadership of the ACO: in this book, he and his musicians are captured in photographs and in their own words, on stage, in rehearsal and in their private lives.
