Description

 

The conductor-less East Coast Chamber Orchestra brings its luminous sound and high-energy enthusiasm back to Music Mondays. Their cleverly designed program draws together chaconne dances from across the centuries – from Bach’s touchstone violin Chaconne (arr. Michi Wiancko) to Purcell’s and other Renaissance works, to Britten’s and a recent work by Gabriela Lena Frank inspired by Andean folk dances. ECCO perfectly balances “the transparency and coherence of a string quartet with an orchestra’s warmth and heft” (N Y Times).
