One of the world’s most dynamic chamber ensembles, the Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO) bring their energetic virtuosity to repertoire old and new and play with a visible sense of shared communication with each other and their audience. Richard Tognetti leads the orchestra, joined by didgeridoo virtuoso William Barton in a program of music by Bryce Dessner, Ruth Crawford Seeger, and a new commissioned work for electric violin and strings by composer and Stanford alum Samuel Adams titled Echo Transcriptions.
This performance by the Australian Chamber Orchestra and the commission by Samuel Adams are generously supported by Roberta and Charles Katz.
