Bach's Chaconne and Beyond

A multi-faceted tribute to Bach’s immortal Chaconne makes for one epic season finale! Following a heartfelt violin sonata by Schumann (who adored Bach), the East Coast Chamber Orchestra’s extraordinary ensemble offers a contemporary work inspired by “this one epic movement … that would define string playing forever after.” Finally, the stunning Chaconne itself, originally written for solo violin, in a breathtaking arrangement for the full forces of string orchestra. You’ll see why the New York Times declared, “ECCO delivers performances that are nothing short of electrifying.”
