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.
