“Where we were once content simply to marvel at the pyrotechnics, now, because of Gringolts’ acute sense of timing and close attention to dynamics, we hear the music.” Gramophone

Richard Tognetti first experienced the young Russian violin sensation Ilya Gringolts on the radio while driving.  He was listening to Paganini’s first violin concerto and was so mesmerised he had to pull over to find out who had made such a visceral impression. For his ACO debut it will be Ilya Gringolts in the driver’s seat – directing the Orchestra while performing the very same concerto.

Béla Bartók’s Divertimento was part of the Australian Chamber Orchestra’s inaugural concert in 1975 – and is still a folk-inspired favourite today. Vivaldi’s Concerto for Violin and 2 Cellos in C major, and CPE Bach’s String Symphony in C major, round out this dazzling, virtuosic display.
