ACO – Arvo Pärt & Shostakovich

Australian Chamber Orchestra presents ACO – Arvo Pärt and Shostakovich

Great art and the Soviet regime.
Arvo Pärt and Shostakovich sees ACO Artistic Director Richard Tognetti and Principal Violin Satu Vänskä take centre stage in one of the most intoxicating pieces of music from the 20th century: Arvo Pärt’s ‘Tabula Rasa’. Pärt is one of today’s most distinctive and revered composers, and since 2010 has been the most performed living composer in the world.

The concert will also see ten violinists of the ACO unite to perform Prokofiev’s fiendishly challenging Sonata for Solo Violin in D major in unison, before the Australian premiere of Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho’s short piece of resistance, ‘Nymphea: Misterioso’. The program concludes with Shostakovich’s ‘Chamber Symphony’ – a string orchestra arrangement of the composer’s famous Eighth String Quartet – a searing and deeply emotive lament.
