A chamber program full of inspiring music and palpable emotions featuring Strauss’ powerful Metamorphosen
‘ACO cellist Valve delivered a performance of brilliant energy, precision and expressive projection.’ Sydney Morning Herald
As Richard Strauss got older, he became fascinated by the textures in chamber music. Metamorphosen is one such example. Usually performed by 23 string players, here you’ll witness it stripped back to its raw, powerful core in a chamber program curated by our Principal Cello, Tipi. Wagner’s gut-wrenching Prelude to Tristan und Isolde depicts our most intimate and passionate feelings, while Mozart’s popular Sinfonia Concertante for violin and viola, in the composer’s arrangement for sextet called the Grande Sestetto Concertante, is a showcase for the supreme talents of the ACO musicians.
Together with Bach and Dowland this is a program full of inspirational music and palpable emotions. Not to be missed.
