“The Glide more akin to The Slide”
Reviewed 19 April 2011

As a subscriber to ACO I was dismayed at the shambolic performance of The Glide: the dissonance between the visual images and the musical score left a lot to be desired I'm afraid. Overall, I found the performance was staid, lacked passion as well as luster - a disappointing event.
On a more positive note were the performances by Joseph and James Tawadros, however. These two composers/musicians were the saving grace on the night - exciting, unpredictable and a sheer joy to hear/see them play - thank you and well done!!
I wish you well ACO but on the basis of The Glide I'm rethinking whether, or, not, to renew my subscription.

“The Glide - A Performance by the ACO”
Reviewed 11 April 2011

I saw the ACO perform The Glide last Friday night. This performance was a marriage of music with images of the sea and surfers gliding on the ocean's waves. The ACO are a group of beach loving musicians who crave any chance they can get to experience the surf themselves, and they produce such wonderful music. Please see them when you next visit Sydney for a unique experience.

“If you only see one orchestra in Sydney this should be it.”
Reviewed 31 March 2011

This has got to be one of the best chamber orchestras in the world. They approach the music with energy and musicality and one of their concerts is an adventure of the best sort.
