Richard Tognetti and members of the Australian Chamber Orchestra performing last January in Niseko.

This family friendly event is a truly unique opportunity to witness world-class artists present their work in the beautiful mountain setting of Niseko, Japan.

About the film:

Mountain is a unique cinematic and musical collaboration between the Australian Chamber Orchestra and BAFTA-nominated director Jennifer Peedom. Mountain is a dazzling exploration of our obsession with mountains.

Only three centuries ago, climbing a mountain would have been considered close to lunacy. The idea scarcely existed that wild landscapes might hold any sort of attraction. Peaks were places of peril, not beauty. Why, then, are we now drawn to mountains in our millions? Mountain shows us the spellbinding force of high places – and their ongoing power to shape our lives and our dreams.

About Richard Tognetti:

Richard Tognetti is a world renowned violinist and the artistic director of the Australian Chamber Orchestra which he has led for over 25 years. As Matthew Westwood wrote last year in The Australian, “A quarter-century ago no one could have ­predicted what the ACO would become under Tognetti’s leadership, yet a confluence of events, people and ideas about music created a powerful momentum".
