A thrilling kind of resonance occurs when a large string orchestra performs. In the 20th century, composers exploited this phenomenon to create works of great power and beauty. Here’s a rare opportunity to hear the ACO, augmented by talented young musicians from our Emerging Artists Program, perform these incomparable modern masterpieces. Vaughan Williams’s ‘Tallis Fantasia’, Bartók’s Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta and Richard Strauss’s Metamorphosen.
A world premiere by Peter Sculthorpe starts the program.
Featured non-Australian music: Xenakis, Bartók, Vaughan Williams, Strauss
