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 Scott Geersen's creative response to Mahler’s Song of the Earth, created in collaboration with ACO violinist Maja Savnik. “Mahler's music comes from a dark but beautiful place that aspires to create eternal perfection.” - The Musician, Maja Savnik “While Mahler's music contains sorrowful moments, I've focused on the more colourful celebration of life.” - The Artist, Scott Geersen Explore the ACO's 2020 Season at Watch all the short films at
