About This Performance

Comprised of 17 leading soloists and chamber musicians of today’s younger generation (many of whom are principals in major American orchestras), this “exciting, conductor-less band of strings (New Yorker) combines the power and expansiveness of a great orchestral ensemble with the personal involvement and spontaneity of chamber music. Of special note on this program is a world premiere by Pierre Jalbert, the celebrated American composer who The New Yorker calls “an acknowledged chamber-music master.”

Mozart: Adagio and Fugue in C Minor, K. 546 [Arr.]
Jalbert: String Theory for string orchestra [World Premiere - PCMS Commission]
Elgar: Serenade in E Minor, Op. 20
Britten: String Quartet in C Major, Op. 36 [Arr.]
