Collaboration and experimentation lie at the heart of everything we do at the ACO. So in a year where we mark 30 years of artistic leadership with Richard Tognetti, and 250 years of enduring musical influence by Beethoven, we decided to celebrate these milestones by commissioning a series of short films, inspired by our musicians and the music in our 2020 Season. This is artist Rich Nosworthy's creative response to Geminiani’s 'La Folia', created in collaboration with ACO Principal Cello Timo-Veikko Valve. “La Folia is an incredibly versatile form which enables us to let loose and improvise on its building blocks, reinventing the music each time it is performed.” - The Musician, Timo-Veikko Valve “These layered, abstract structures represent the format of La Folia, a base that's been built upon as a foundation for modern music.” - The Artist, Rich Nosworthy Explore the ACO's 2020 Season at Watch all the short films at
