Performance Dates & Times

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

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

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.

PROGRAM

Adams Concerto Grosso (World Premiere*)
Shostakovich Cello Concerto No.1 in E-flat major
Elena Kats-Chernin New Work (World Premiere**)
Haydn Symphony No.104 in D major ‘London’

* Commissioned by the Australian Chamber Orchestra and Stanford Live
** Commissioned by Mirek Generowicz to share the dramatic story of his family's journey to Australia.
