Australian Chamber Orchestra

Beethoven - Australian Chamber Orchestra (3CD)

In 2020 the Australian Chamber Orchestra celebrated two monumental anniversaries: 30 years of fearless leadership with ACO Artistic Director Richard Tognetti and 250 years since the birth of the great Ludwig van Beethoven. 

To celebrate both milestones, ABC Classic released a collection of the ACO's legendary Beethoven recordings - including never-before released recordings of two of his greatest works: Symphonies 5 and 6.

These recordings represent some of the orchestra's finest performances, including two #1 albums and three ARIA Award-nominees, and feature collaborations with some of Australia's finest artists - soprano Nicole Car, and pianists Tamara Anna Cislowska and Erin Helyard.
