SIBELIUS Symphony No.6
MAHLER Symphony No.4

Richard Tognetti, Director & Violin
Kiera Duffy, Soprano
Australian Chamber Orchestra

Richard Tognetti’s critically acclaimed and award-winning direction of the Australian Chamber Orchestra’s large-scale orchestral concerts are an annual highlight. Under his direction, their Beethoven 9 concerts won Limelight’s Best Orchestral Concert in 2012.

For the next step in his symphony series, Tognetti tackles the biggest symphonic configuration in ACO history, featuring two ACO premieres penned by two of history’s greatest composers for the form.

Tognetti explores how astounding and diverse the symphonic experience can be, pairing the shortest and sweetest of all Mahler’s symphonies, the radiant “Heavenly” Symphony No.4, with Sibelius’ serenely beautiful Symphony No.6, which the composer said always reminded him “of the scent of the first snow.”

National Post, Canada
"Kiera Duffy [has] a brilliant soprano with a lustrous edge that sets it apart from the high-altitude norm. This was wonderfully luminous and fluid singing."

The Age
"Richard Tognetti's direction [of Beethoven's Symphony No.9] - leading with his instrument and conducting - energised all his artists to deliver a jubilant performance."
