Event Details

Featuring works thoughtfully selected to commemorate the ANZAC Day centenary, this concert includes music by Australian composers Peter Sculthorpe and Fredrick Septimus Kelly. Kelly's touching Elegy was written in 1915 in his tent at Gallipoli. The work is a tribute to poet and fallen soldier Rupert Brooke.

Also on the program, a brilliant Bach Violin Concerto starring Helena Rathbone on her 1759 Guadagnini violin.

ACO2 connects the next generation of talented young Australian musicians with the stars of the Australian Chamber Orchestra, creating a combined ensemble with a fresh, energetic performance style. Don’t miss this chance to hear musicians from Australia’s most dynamic and critically acclaimed orchestra performing with the stars of the future.

Featured non-Australian music: Kelly, JS Bach, CPE Bach, Carter, Walton
