Arvo Pärt & JS Bach

Australian Chamber Orchestra

Arvo Pärt & JS Bach

Performance Dates & Times

Richard Tognetti opens ACO’s 2019 Season with a program that will reach celestial heights. The famed Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir joins them in a celebration of Bach and Arvo Pärt. Ethereal and otherworldly, this is music by two towering composers searching for the very core of human meaning.

Bach’s sublime Lutheran motets interleave with Pärt’s mystical explorations of the Orthodox faith, before reaching the climax of the program: Pärt’s Berliner Messe.

Fellow Estonian Galina Grigorjeva’s In Paradisum, with its joyous call on the angels to lead souls into heaven, leads their own program into paradise, while Peter Sculthorpe’s Djilile, inspired by an Indigenous song, makes a resonant Australian introduction to Pärt’s luminous Messe.
