AUSTRALIAN ROMANTIC & CLASSICAL ORCHESTRA
Under the Artistic Direction of renowned musician and educator Richard Gill AO, the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra (formerly orchestra seventeen88) is a world-class orchestra of leading Australian musicians who are dedicated to the performance of Classical and Romantic orchestral and chamber music repertoire in historically informed style on period instruments. This inspiring and highly influential period of composition from the late 18th and 19th centuries demonstrates the depth and passion of the time and when placed in context the music comes to life.
Established in 2013, by Richard Gill AO, Rachael Beesley, Nicole van Bruggen and Benjamin Bayl, the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra has already become a dynamic influence on the Australian music scene. The orchestra provides opportunities for engagement and education with wide audiences through live performance, collaborations with Australian ensembles and conductors, radio broadcasts and specialist music education programs. Inviting leading Australian exponents of this repertoire, many of whom are based in Europe, brings new insight and discovery to the performances and creates the highest level of performance on Australian stages.
