Event Details


JOSEPH TAWADROS Selections from Permission to Evaporate, and original works exploring the crossroads of oud and string orchestra
VIVALDI The Four Seasons
GABRIELI Sonata XXI ‘con tre violini’


Richard Tognetti Director & Violin
James Tawadros Percussion
Experience the ACO’s critically acclaimed highlight concert of the 2015 Season. Delve into Richard Tognetti’s unique exploration of musical connections between East and West, as he pairs Vivaldi’s Baroque masterpiece with original compositions by ARIA Award-winning oud virtuoso, Joseph Tawadros.
Vivaldi’s Four Seasons has undergone many reincarnations since it was first played by the talented orphans of the Ospedale della Pietà in 18th-century Venice. Now, Richard Tognetti and Joseph Tawadros bring their own blend of musical alchemy to this program, reminding us that Venice is barely a day’s sail from Cairo.
Almost 300 years after Vivaldi penned the Four Seasons, Joseph Tawadros brings the sounds of the near east to Australia with a selection of original works.
