A multi-faceted tribute to Bach’s immortal Chaconne makes for one epic season finale! David Ludwig, Dean of Music at The Juilliard School, draws on the East Coast Chamber Orchestra's extraordinary ensemble of all-virtuoso players with a work inspired by “this one epic movement by Bach 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."
