Australian Chamber Orchestra @ Café Carlyle

April 16 @ 8:30 pm April 20 @ 8:30 pm


Charismatic Australian violinist Richard Tognetti, Artistic Director of the acclaimed Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO), will make his much-anticipated return to New York’s Café Carlyle for a five-night residency, April 16–20, 2024.

Tognetti is internationally renowned for his compelling performances and artistic individualism. In addition to performing as a director and soloist with orchestras around the world, he has been Artistic Director of the ACO for over three decades, during which time the Orchestra has developed a reputation as the world’s greatest chamber orchestra, famed for distinctive and adventurous programming and high-octane virtuosity.

Joining Tognetti onstage are three musicians of the ACO – Principal Violin Satu Vänskä, violist Elizabeth Woolnough, and cellist Eliza Sdraulig – to perform an intrepid selection of music that moves from JS Bach to Nick Drake.

The quartet will also celebrate the beguilingly subversive songs of the Weimar Republic – the all-too-brief golden era of artistic and musical liberation in 1920s Berlin before its suppression by the Nazis – with Vänskä switching out her precious Stradivarius violin to sing the sultry tunes of musicians including Kurt Weill and Friedrich Hollaender.

$100 – $190 Per Person
