East Coast Chamber Orchestra to Perform at Cooperstown Summer Music Festival, 8/21
The East Coast Chamber Orchestra will perform in the finale of the 15th season Cooperstown Summer Music Festival, on Wednesday, August 21 at 7:30 pm at The Farmers' Museum.
The Festival finale on August 21 is a return performance of the East Coast Chamber Orchestra. This 13-member strong ensemble, comprised of members of major orchestras, string quartets and GRAMMY-award winners, will perform Mozart, Ravel, and a new work, Virtuosity, by David Ludwig that ECCO will premiere August 18 at the Lake Champlain Chamber Music Festival.
"This piece started with that title, as I was also thinking of the concept of virtuosity already as it related to the East Coast Chamber Orchestra, an extraordinary ensemble comprised of all-virtuoso players. I decided that the best way to explore the idea was to make a piece made of "micro-concertos," so that I could express virtuosity in different ways with each string instrument," explains David Ludwig.
In addition to this brand-new piece, ECCO will perform classical masterworks by Ravel and Mozart arranged for string orchestra.
