Go/Hear - Appalachia!

ECCO fills the stage to lead the final program in the Go/Hear series, which takes us to rural Appalachia. American master John Adams’s stirring, unforgettable Shaker Loops puts you in the middle of the Shakers’ ecstatic gatherings, while Aaron Copland’s famous Appalachian Spring lands you amidst the breathtaking mountain landscapes that make the region famous – scenes also projected in between the music. Short works inspired by fiddlers and old-time hymns fill out the program.

Program:

Copland: Appalachian Spring
John Adams: Shaker Loops
Finney: Fiddle Doodle Ad

ECCO

In 2001, a group of musicians colleagues and friends from leading conservatories and music festivals across the country envisioned the creation of a democratically run, self-conducted chamber orchestra. The result was ECCO, a dynamic collective that combines the strength and power of a great orchestral ensemble with the personal involvement and sensitivity of superb chamber music.
ECCO is comprised of some of today's most vibrant and gifted young string players — soloists, chamber musicians, principals of major American orchestras, and GRAMMY award winners. ECCO members play with the symphony orchestras of Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, St. Louis, Seattle and Boston among others. Members also play with the Enso, Jasper, Johannes, Jupiter, Parker, and Ying Quartets, as well as the Horszowski Trio, Trio Cavatina, Sejong Soloists, Time for Three, Konomichi and Chamber Music Society II. For a few concentrated periods of time each year, the members of ECCO meet for rehearsal and musical exploration.
In 2012 ECCO celebrated its first decade with the release of its first commercial recording. It includes Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings in C Major Op. 48, Shostakovich's Chamber Symphony in C minor, Op. 110a and the exuberant and surprising "La Follia" Variations for String Orchestra, arranged by ECCO's own Michi Wiancko after Francesco Geminiani's Concerto Grosso No. 12 in D minor.
ECCO's 2014-15 season includes their debut at the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis and Concerts International in Memphis as well as return visits to the Skaneateles Festival, Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, and Peoples' Symphony Concerts.
