The Jupiter String Quartet, described as “an ensemble of eloquent intensity” by The New Yorker, performs on tour with East Coast Chamber Orchestra (ECCO). Featuring members of some of the world's finest orchestras, chamber groups, as well as young soloists, ECCO strives for vitality and musical integrity. This historically rich concert program features Franz Schubert’s String Quartet in D Minor, D. 810 (“Death and the Maiden”), arranged for string orchestra by Gustav Mahler; Adolphus Hailstork’s Sonata da Chiesa from 1992, an instrumental counterpart to a traditional choral Mass; and Jessie Montgomery’s Banner from 2014, which, as Montgomery explains, draws on world anthems and patriotic songs to answer the question, “What does an anthem for the 21st century sound like in today’s multicultural environment?”
