As Claude Debussy once surmised - "We must agree that the beauty of a work of art will always remain a mystery”.This program epitomises exactly that, uniting a collection of pieces that trade an explanatory narrative for a rich vein of timeless beauty.

SCULTHORPE Sonata for Strings No.1
DEBUSSY (arr. Richard Tognetti) The Girl with the Flaxen Hair and The Interrupted Serenade from Preludes Book I
RAVEL (arr. Richard Tognetti) Two Hebrew Melodies
ELGAR Serenade for Strings
WALTON Sonata for Strings

Richard Tognetti Director & Violin

William Walton’s Sonata for Strings is a seemingly effortless interweaving of parts, while fellow Brit, Sir Edward Elgar’s Serenade for Strings holds a special place in the heart of the ACO and it remains a favourite for musicians and audiences alike.

Peter Sculthorpe’s first Sonata for Strings, Ravel’sTwo Hebrew Melodies and Debussy’s The Girl with the Flaxen Hair andThe Interrupted Serenade complete this musical treat.
