Australian Chamber Orchestra

Artistic Director

After studying both in Australia and overseas at the Bern Conservatory with Igor Ozim, Richard Tognetti returned home in 1989 to lead several performances with the ACO. In November that year, he was appointed the Orchestra’s lead violin and, subsequently, Artistic Director. He is also Artistic Director of the Festival Maribor in Slovenia. As director or soloist, Richard has appeared with many of the world’s leading orchestras, including the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and the Academy of Ancient Music. Richard is also an acclaimed composer. He was appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia in 2010, holds honorary doctorates from three Australian universities and was made a National Living Treasure in 1999. He performs on a 1743 Guarneri del Gesù violin, lent to him by an anonymous Australian private benefactor.
