Welcome to the 2022 summer season! Luxuriate in the East Coast Chamber Orchestra’s glorious sound-world with Strauss’s lovely String Sextet from Capriccio, three poignant pieces by Clara Schumann, and a kaleidoscopic work that celebrates the vitality and resilience of the natural world, performed by the ensemble-within-an-ensemble Jupiter String Quartet. Finally, Schubert’s “Death and the Maiden,” a pillar of the chamber music repertoire, builds a dialogue between sinister, subversive power and a dreamy, expressive lyricism in Mahler’s arrangement for string orchestra.
