Australian Chamber Orchestra - Mozart & Britten -relaxed performance

Cellist from Australian Chamber Orchestra

The Australian Chamber Orchestra with Richard Tognetti (director & violin) and Stefanie Farrands (viola) perform a program of works by Mozart and Britten.

Benjamin Britten and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart bothe began composing at an early age, and this concert presents one work from each of them composed at the age of 16. It also has one work from each composer's maturity. White Hat confidently expects that both the youthful and mature works will receive the highly polished and professional performances we have grown to expt from the ACO.

Australian Chamber Orchestra - Bach

Cellist from Australian Chamber Orchestra

When it comes to dynasties of musicians and composers, the Bach family is one of the most remarkable, crowned of course by the mighty Johann Sebastian. However, his forebears were more than competent at their trade as this concert demonstrates, while his two most prominent sons - Carl Phillip Emanuel and Johann Christian - explored new paths towards the ‘storm and stress’ style and Haydn and the rococo style and Mozart respectively

It was no surprise that when White Hat compiled our list top 100 concertos, J. S. Bach’s Concerto for Two Violins came out as number 1. Not even the best efforts of generations of juvenile violin students have been able to destroy this work. Imagine then how it shines when played by some of Australia's finest - the Australian Chamber Orchestra with Richard Tognetti (Director) and Anna Dowsley (Principal Violin) as violin soloists. Other fine soloists include Anna Dowsley (mezzo-soprano), Helena Rathbone (violin),  Erin Helyard (harpsichord & fortepiano) and Timo-Veikko Valve (cello) in C. P. E. Bach’s virtuoistic Cello Concerto.

  • J. L. Bach Suite in G major: Overture
  • H. Bach Sonata à 5 in F major
  • J. C. Bach Meine Freundin, du bist schön: Ciaconna “Mein Freund is Mein”
  • J. S. Bach Concerto for Two Violins in D minor, BWV1043 (one of White Hat's Top 100 Concerti)
  • J. S. Bach Cantata “Widerstehe doch der Sünde” BWV54: “Widerstehe doch der Sünde”
  • J. S. Bach Cantata “Ich habe genug”, BWV82: “Schlummert ein, ihr matten Augen”
  • Mozart (after J. C. Bach) Piano Concerto No.12 in A major, K.414: II. Andante
  • J. C. F. Bach Sinfonia in D minor: I. Allegro
  • J. C. F. Bach Die Amerikanerin: “Mein Herz fleucht ihr entgegen”
  • C. P. E. Bach Cello Concerto in A major, Wq.172
