“In a program framed by Mozart symphonies – No 29 and No 40 – director Richard Tognetti and his group produced playing of fabulous alertness and tight ensemble; if there's a better chamber orchestra in the world today, I haven't heard it.”

The Guardian UK

Reverence and radicalism go hand in hand when it comes to the ACO and Mozart.

Following performances of Mozart’s last three symphonies, which were rapturously received, Richard Tognetti and the ACO now shine a light on the composer’s inventive middle period, bringing to the 31st, 35th and 36th symphonies the trademark wit and spark that have made the Orchestra an audience favourite around the world.

Mozart’s Paris Symphony was such an instant success that its first audience was in rapturous applause before the opening movement had even ended. The ceremonial Haffner and mercurial Linz are further testament to the miraculous scope of Mozart’s genius.

Joining the ACO for this unmissable spectacle are wind and brass players hand-picked by Richard Tognetti from the world’s finest period-instrument orchestras, and string players from the Australian National Academy of Music.

This is ACO heartland, with the Orchestra at its joyous and energising best.
