  6. Suite, from Soundtrack to the film 'There will be blood' - Jonny Greenwood
  7. String Quartet No 2 - Karol Szymanowski, arranged for string orchestra by Richard Tognetti

Discover how the kaleidoscopic dissonances and pioneering textures of 20th century Polish classical music inspired some of the boldest sounds in 21st century culture, as the two worlds collide. Richard Tognetti and his Australian Chamber Orchestra are joined by musicians from Guildhall School to bring music by pop-cultural icons Jonny Greenwood and Bryce Dessner face-to-face with the sounds of post-World War Two Poland – Szymanowski, Penderecki and Lutoslawski – in an evening that’s been described as ‘a mind-bending, ear twisting, richly rewarding musical experience like few others’ (The Australian).

No music exists in a vacuum – so prepare for the worlds of neo-classicism, Polish folk and the avant garde to collide with contemporary cult classics in a dizzying, mesmerising and energising concert experience typical of our International Associate Ensemble.
