Australian Chamber Orchestra presents

ACO Soloists

In a group the size of the ACO, there is nowhere to hide. It’s an ensemble of soloists.

05 May – 05 May


This program showcases the extraordinary talents of the ACO’s musicians. Principal Violin Satu Vänskä takes on the devilishly dazzling Harmonic Labyrinth by Locatelli, whose concerto bears the inscription “facilis aditus, difficilis exitus” – easy to enter, difficult to exit. Following her stunning performance of Paganini’s Moses Fantasy in 2016, Satu will have you on the edge of your seat as she shreds the Locatelli with her customary flair. 


Joining her in Vivaldi’s Concerto for Two Violins and Cello is one of the Orchestra’s newest players, Glenn Christensen. Glenn first performed with the ACO in 2001 as a member of Gondwana Voices, then in 2014 as an Emerging Artist. He has since blossomed as a full-time member of the ACO. 


Another of our renowned Principals, cellist Timo-Veikko Valve, will play his glorious Guarneri filius Andreæ in a new arrangement of Debussy’s mercurial and eloquent Sonata for Cello and Piano (performed here with string orchestra accompaniment), composed just a few years before the composer’s death.
