Australian Chamber Orchestra – Steven Isserlis Plays Shostakovich

Concert or Performance

27 Jun 2018

Legendary cellist Steven Isserlis joins Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO) for Shostakovich’s monumental First Cello Concerto along with Haydn’s ‘London’ Symphony.

“Isserlis flings himself into music… he’s utterly committed to every moment” – The Washington Post

When Steven Isserlis and Richard Tognetti get together, you know there are going to be fireworks when their ideas ignite. Friends for over 20 years, their concert holds a special place in the ACO’s 2018 Season.

Shostakovich’s monumental first cello concerto sees Isserlis at his sublime best, while Haydn’s ‘London’ symphony – arguably the pinnacle of his compositional achievement – lies at the very heart of the ACO’s repertoire.

Adding to this special program are two world premieres – one by Australian composer Elena Kats-Chernin, whose colourful and expressive style makes a welcome return to the ACO, and a modern retelling of the concerto grosso by Samuel Adams, one of the most original compositional voices in the world today.
