In addition to the Montgomery, ECCO will perform Barber’s Adagio from the String Quartet in B Minor, Op. 11; Elgar’s Serenade for Strings in E Minor, Op. 20; Hanna Benn’s Where Springs Not Fail; Bartók’s Divertimento for String Orchestra, Sz.113. “Three of the Jupiters are founding members of ECCO, so getting to play together at CMNW will be a happy reunion between musicians that have known each other for more than two decades,” says Jupiter Quartet’s violist Liz Freivogel. “It will be a joyful and celebratory way to kickstart a return to live performances.”
Preceding these performances, the Jupiter Quartet will perform as members of ECCO on July 1 and 2, 2021, opening CMNW’s 2021 festival with performances of Bach’s Cantata 180: “Schmücke dich, o liebe Seele”, BWV 180; Mendelssohn’s; Concerto for Piano, Violin, and Strings in D minor, MWV O4; and Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings in C Major, Op. 48. https://cmnw.org/concerts-tickets/all-concerts-events/opening-night-with-east-coast-chamber-orchestra/1263
