An abundance of riches awaits the listener in this program featuring works for large ensembles. Dutch composer Jan Koetsier's work challenges the power and agility of today’s brass instruments as ten master players bring this tuneful work to life. Jacques Ibert’s Trio for Violin, Cello and Harp provides moments of wit and ethereal repose. Finally, nine string players take the stage for Dvořák’s Serenade for Strings, one of the sunniest the Czech master ever penned.
