ACO Collective: Vaughan Williams, Purcell, Richter, Cawrse, Kilar & Suk

Thu 9 May @ 19:00 - 21:00

$18 – $49

THE LARK ASCENDING

With its soaring melodies and joyful trills, Ralph Vaughan Williams creates a radiant portrait of a lark in flight, trailing a silver chain of sound as it rises. ACO Collective plays this eternal favourite as the centrepiece of an uplifting program directed by ACO Principal Violin Helena Rathbone.

Rathbone has guided the ACO Collective since its founding in 2007, offering audiences across the country the opportunity to hear Australia’s brightest young musicians in concert alongside members of the ACO.

The program spans five centuries from Henry Purcell’s Fantasia Upon One Note to Max Richter’s cinematic On the Nature of Daylight. Continuing its commitment to fostering Australian voices, the ACO Collective will premiere a new commission by award-winning Australian composer Anne Cawrse, sought after for her appealing, approachable sound.

The concert closes with Kilar’s energetic symphonic poem, Orawa, and Suk’s glowing Serenade for Strings.
