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 Helen Hsu’s creative response to Beethoven’s ‘Eroica’ Symphony, created in collaboration with ACO Artistic Director Richard Tognetti. “Symphony No.3, the great ‘Eroica’, with all its political overtones and the crossing out of the Napoleonic dedication, is a great dramatic story.” - The Musician, Richard Tognetti “We take a journey to find the ideal hero that Beethoven was trying to portray.” - The Artist, Helen Hsu Explore the ACO's 2020 Season at Watch all the short films at
