Violinist Anthony Marwood directs a string showcase featuring works by Stravinsky, Dvořák and more.


STRAVINSKY          Divertimento (arr. for violin and string orchestra) 
DVOŘÁK     Serenade for Strings     
ENESCU     Octet, Op.7 (arr. for string orchestra)

Acclaimed British violinist Anthony Marwood is loved by audiences, critics and players for his distinctive playing, golden sound and inspiring leadership.

A perfect opening for this Australian Chamber Orchestra showcase of string orchestra repertoire, Stravinsky’s balletic tribute to Tchaikovsky was recently recorded by Marwood in a performance hailed as “scintillating from start to finish” 
(BBC Music Magazine).

One of the ACO’s favourite string works, Dvořák’s uplifting Serenade fills the hall with pure, unadulterated joy. A natural extension of the Dvořák and Tchaikovsky Serenades, late-Romantic composer Enescu’s gutsy piece is “a powerful work of genius…in concert, it would undoubtedly bring down the house” 
(Edition Silvertrust).

BBC Music Magazine
"[Marwood's performances have] boundless energy, intellectual curiosity and creative wizardry."

The Australian
"The ACO has played [Dvořák's Serenade for Strings] countless times but performed it with all the enthusiasm and freshness of new discovery."

Strings Magazine
"It takes a violinist of high calibre to give voice to such poetic masterworks and Marwood delivers the goods time and again. I've seldom heard Stravinsky sound so spectacular."
