“The original source of Schubert’s fun-loving piano quintet was a song warning young women against being ‘caught’ by ‘angling’ men, but for the piano quintet version he concentrates on the colorful imagery of a trout in its natural habitat. Banner “daringly transforms the [national] anthem, folding it into a teeming score…to create a musical melting pot” (New York Times), and features the ensemble-within-an-ensemble Jupiter String Quartet. The East Coast Chamber Orchestra brings its residency to a high-spirited finale with Tchaikovsky’s heartfelt Serenade for Strings, one of the most definitive and popular works from the late Romantic era, infused with grace, exuberance, and sheer joy.”
