A Far Cry | By Heart
Sunday • February 7, 2021 | 2:00 pm
In a program that celebrates A Far Cry’s unique artistic values and our return to the stage as a full orchestra, we perform our signature piece, the Tchaikovsky Serenade, from memory! Democratically run and self-conducted, Criers rotate leadership on and off the stage, bringing fresh perspective to every piece of repertoire we perform. For the Tchaikovsky, one of the group’s earliest and most often concertized works, this means that layers of interpretation have accumulated – adding ever more depth to our collective memory of an old favorite. And, there’s nothing that deepens the relationship with a piece of music (and with each other) quite like playing it together by heart. To open the program, the mysticism of the Pärt plus the fresh classicism of the Bologne give a nod to Tchaikovsky’s deep love of Russia and admiration of Mozart. These styles come together as two poles of expression that unite in the Serenade.
