This all-strings programme, led by the brilliant Richard Tognetti from the Australian Chamber Orchestra, contains a saucy surprise.
In this wide-ranging concert, the famed violinist Richard Tognetti leads the OAE in music ranging from the fresh and zesty Haydn through to the rich sonorities and melancholic beauty of Dvorak’s Serenade. Along the way there are works by Mendelssohn and Haydn as well as two intriguing miniatures – Elgar’s achingly beautiful Sospiri and Grieg’s intriguingly named Erotique.
