This is an Australian Premiere and a very special event in the Australian Chamber Orchestra’s National Concert Season. The Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO) presents Bach’s iconic keyboard work in a celebration that brings together the old and the new in an utterly unique and illuminating way. ‘An Aria with Diverse Variations for the Harpsichord with Two Manuals, Composed for Music Lovers to Refresh their Spirits by Johann Sebastian Bach’ is now known simply as the Goldberg Variations. Thomas Adès’ ‘Nightfalls’ will set the nocturnal scene before the ACO presents the Australian premiere of Canadian composer/ conductor Bernard Labadie’s string arrangement of Bach’s iconic keyboard work. A transformation of the original – which many of you will recognise – it offers audiences something fresh and inventive.
