James Ehnes and friends from the Seattle Chamber Music Society hit the road on a fascinating journey through chamber music by some of the giants of 20th-century American classical music. Aaron Copland’s masterful violin sonata, Leonard Bernstein’s youthful and vibrant piano trio, and Samuel Barber’s string quartet with its famous Adagio slow movement (known the world over as ‘the Barber Adagio’) are joined by Elliott Carter’s haunting Elegy from early in his long career, and the other-worldly Largo by that great maverick Charles Ives.
