This event has passed.


Note: There is a free pre-concert lecture at 6:45 with James Primosch.

Mozart: Adagio and Fugue in C Minor, K. 546 [Arr.]
Jalbert: String Theory for string orchestra [World Premiere/PCMS Commission]
Elgar: Serenade in E Minor, Op. 20
Britten: String Quartet in C Major, Op. 36 [Arr.] 

Comprised of 17 leading soloists and chamber musicians of today's younger generation (many of whom are principals in major American orchestras), this 'exciting, conductor-less band of strings' (New Yorker) combines the power and expansiveness of a great orchestral ensemble with the personal involvement and spontaneity of chamber music. Of special note on this program is a PCMS-commissioned world premiere by Pierre Jalbert, the celebrated American composer who The New Yorker calls 'an acknowledged chamber-music master.' 

Program length: 1 hour and 45 minutes 

The PCMS 2015/16 season is currently available by subscription.
