The celebrated string ensemble, which calls itself a product of Australia’s “vibrant, adventurous, and enquiring spirit,” is known for its stylistic range and all-out verve. Founded in 1975, the flexible “ensemble of soloists”—whose collaborators include the stellar soprano Dawn Upshaw and the great Australian satirist Barry Humphries—plays classical music, electro-acoustic pieces, and new music by Australian composers it champions.

Come be swept away by these high-spirited Aussies as they perform Haydn, Mozart, and a North American premiere of Water by Jonny Greenwood (Radiohead). 

A note from the artist:

 

"We're thrilled to premiere Water, the long-awaited new piece by acclaimed musician Jonny Greenwood. Following his latest international tour with legendary band Radiohead, Greenwood joined the ACO in the studio writing this new work. One of the world’s greatest guitarists, Greenwood also writes great orchestral music. He composed the award-winning film score for There Will Be Blood, was composer-in-residence with the BBC Concert Orchestra and has written scores for films The Master, Norwegian Wood and We Need to Talk About Kevin." 

Please note that Charles Neidich will be performing as soloist in the clarinet concerto, in place of the previously announced Martin Frost who is recovering from a shoulder injury.
