The Australian Chamber Orchestra Presents 'River'
You have gazed upon them. Swum them. You may have travelled them the world over. But you have never experienced rivers like this before.
Spanning six continents and drawing on striking cinematography, drone footage and satellite filming, River is the cinematic work of Director Jennifer Peedom, best known for her record-breaking IMAX-documentary, Mountain. River again sees Peedom find stark beauty in the complex relationship between humans and the raw, vast tracts of our planet’s various river systems shown in rarely seen perspectives.
With a musical score performed live and Directed by Richard Tognetti, the River soundtrack features Tognetti’s original compositions alongside interpretations of Bach, Vivaldi, Ravel and works by Radiohead guitarist and composer Jonny Greenwood, who has worked with Tognetti on several projects in recent times.
Featuring Richard Tognetti (Musical Director, Composer and Lead Violin), William Barton (vocals) and the Australian Chamber Orchestra, River will tour nationally through July and August.
