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 the creative response of artists Nidia Dias and Martin Gunnarsson to Arvo Pärt’s 'Tabula Rasa', created in collaboration with Satu Vänskä. “Pärt's genius is being in touch with the physical and the divine in such a compelling way.” - The Musician, Satu Vänskä “There is a sense of creature or a god-like being, but it is invisible. The only thing we see is the dynamic movement of the strings.” - The Artist, Nidia Dias Explore the ACO's 2020 Season at Watch all the short films at
