AUSTRALIA Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO) Chopin and Mendelssohn's Octet

Combining virtuosity with tender lyricism, Chopin's First Piano Concerto is an ideal vehicle for the unique talents of Polina Leschenko. The carefree exuberance of Mendelssohn's Octet belies its fiendish technical intricacies. The tonal riches of ACO's three legendary violins - Stradivari, Guarneri and Guadagnini - are revealed in Richard Tognetti's specially created arrangement of Paganini.
