Portland Chamber Music Festival: Universal Resonance


The virtuosic East Coast Chamber Orchestra returns to Portland!

The East Coast Chamber Orchestra’s PCMF debut in 2022 drew raves from audiences: “The energy and artistry was astounding!” “Such virtuosic performances, and such wit and joy!” Well, they’re back, bringing with them Handmade Universe, a brand new work by Grammy nominated composer Vijay Iyer that blends jazz harmonies with intricate orchestrations. Bookending this Maine premiere are a rollicking set of variations on a popular Baroque dance theme, and the youthful vigor of Mendelssohn’s delightful Octet for Strings, written when he was just 16.

Francesco Geminiani (arr. Michi Wiancko) "La Follia" Variations (1729/2010)

Vijay Iyer Handmade Universe (2023)

Felix Mendelssohn String Octet in E-flat Major, Op. 20 (1825)
