ECCO w/ Sivan Magen, harp
April 21, 2017 @ 8:00 pm$25
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” (The 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 the Philadelphia premiere of Christopher Theofanidis’ A Thousand Cranes, a symphony for strings and harp “inspired by the power of a child’s innocence to transcend human tragedy.”
Theofanidis: A Thousand Cranes [Philadelphia Premiere]
Caplet: Conte fantastique
Lutosławski: Five Folk Melodies
Suk: Serenade in E-flat Major
This performance features a free pre-concert lecture starting at 6:45 PM with Ross Amico.
