Boston: Australian Chamber Orchestra - Tanglewood Music Festival



The Australian Chamber Orchestra will be joined by old friend Steven Isserlis, to perform the Schumann Cello Concerto as part of the Tanglewood Festival in Boston this August.


One of the leading composers of our time, Peteris Vasks, has written a new violin concerto for the ACO and Artistic Director Richard Tognetti. On its Australian premiere, critics called Vox Amoris “a beautiful work, like a long cinematic nocturnal soliloquy”.
