The Eclipse Chamber Orchestra was formed in 1992 by 22 members of the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington D.C. While making world-class performances available to listeners from every age and economic level, it enhances the visibility and accessibility of its musicians to audiences in the nation’s capital. The orchestra has become known for exceptional performances of diverse repertoire from the seventeenth to the 21st century, and has commissioned and given premières of over a dozen works. The level of artistry of the membership is such that Eclipse features its own members almost exclusively as concerto soloists for each concert. Directed from its inception by Sylvia Alimena, guest conductors have included Leonard Slatkin and Joseph Silverstein. The orchestra made its John F. Kennedy Center début in 1995 and has been featured frequently on WETA 90.9 FM radio and public radio’s Performance Today. In addition to the present recording of the long-neglected music of Florian Gassmann, the orchestra is also recording the music of past and current composers-in-residence Mark Adamo and Truman Harris.
