Australian Chamber Orchestra - Viennese Masters

Viennese Masters is presented by the Australian Chamber Orchestra, featuring works by Schubert, Beethoven, and Brahms. Vienna was the centre of 19th century music-making and these three composers were its masters. More, the Clarinet Quintet was Brahms’ supreme achievement in chamber music and Beethoven’s Septet made him a celebrity in the city.

"The ACO has often performed on so-called original instruments without trumpeting the fact. This time, however, we’re proclaiming the use of gut strings and welcoming period wind virtuosi Craig Hill, Darryl Poulson and Jane Gower, principal bassoonist in John Eliot Gardiner’s orchestras. There’ll be eight of us on stage performing two monumental works of the chamber music repertoire. Since Satu first started performing Schubert’s Rondo Brillante, she always heard the piano as an orchestra, so we’re bringing the piano part to life with our mini-orchestra." Richard Tognetti
