Prokofiev (arr. Barshai/Tognetti) Visions fugitives
Shostakovich Piano Concerto No.1
Tchaikovsky Souvenir de Florence
Richard Tognetti Artistic Director and Lead Violin
Steven Osborne Piano
David Elton Trumpet
As soon as he played with the ACO, Steven Osborne wanted to return with Shostakovich's Piano Concerto No.1, for it requires an immensely virtuosic string orchestra, flexibility and humour veering on craziness. The time has now come with this all-Russian concert.
Brimming with carefree energy, Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir is an exuberant postcard from an Italian summer holiday. “The ACO...set the audience in a spin with its heady version of Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence. Richard Tognetti was intent on making the most of the Russian nostalgia, romancing his violins, sending the audience into a clapping frenzy.” Herald Sun
