Richard Tognetti and the ANAM Orchestra tour to Geelong

In Richard Tognetti’s hands, music from the past and present speak to each other in a way that reveals something new and engaging about both. In this intriguing line-up, Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood responds to Penderecki’s groundbreaking string masterpiece of 1961 with his own work for string orchestra. Brahms crowns the evening when Tognetti leads the ANAM Orchestra from the violin in the master’s immortal First Symphony.
