This concert, touring nation-wide and headlined by the Australian Chamber Orchestra’s husband-and-wife duo Richard Tognetti and Satu Vänskä, is a tribute to the music forged in the crucible of the former Soviet Union.

Arvo Pärt’s Tabula Rasa, birthed from the shroud of Stalinism that lurked over the Baltic states in the 20th century, kicks off this production. Shostakovich’s Chamber Symphony bookends it on the other side. This event, playing in the final weeks of March, serves as a testament to Eastern European composition and will interest any connoisseur of the classical genre.
