PRINCETON UNIVERSITY CONCERT PRESENTS THE AUSTRALIAN CHAMBER ORCHESTRA WITH GUEST CLARINETIST MARTIN FROST
Hip, refreshing and brilliant, the Australian Chamber Orchestra has been called “a badass classical band” by Time Out New York while The Washington Post hails them for combining “the energy and vibe of a rock band with the ability of a crack classical chamber group.” Their instruments alone represent an all-star lineup, including the legendary 1743 Carrodus Guarneri del Gesù violin; the Carrodus made by del Gesù, called one of the four or five of the finest violins in the world; a 1759 Guadagnini; a 1728/9 Strad; and a 1729 Giuseppe Guarneri filius Andreæ cello. But it’s the way these virtuosi play their extraordinary instruments that makes them a Dream Team. At Princeton they’ll premiere Water by Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood. The Orchestra will also team up with a clarinetist some are saying may be the greatest of all time. “Fröst exhibited a virtuosity and a musicianship unsurpassed by any clarinetist—perhaps any instrumentalist—in my memory,” gushed The New York Times.
