In this pro­gram, the Aus­tralian Cham­ber Orches­tra en­sem­ble sheds all but sec­tion prin­ci­pals, and chan­nels char­ac­ter­is­tic ACO doses of tem­pes­tu­ous tang into the ex­posed ter­rain of the string quar­tet and pi­ano quin­tet. Framed around stir­ring works writ­ten by Schu­mann for these en­sem­ble com­bi­na­tions, this oth­er­wise unadul­ter­ated re­turn to in­ti­mate cham­ber reper­toire also in­tro­duces some­thing novel: a pi­ano quin­tet re­duc­tion of Mozart’s Pi­ano Con­certo No 13. Join­ing the ACO reg­u­lars — leader Tognetti, prin­ci­pal vi­olin He­lena Rath­bone and prin­ci­pal cel­list Timo-Veikko Valve — is guest artist Flo­rian Peel­man.
