A Far Cry | Stonehenge

Sunday, February 18, 2024   |   3:00 pm 4:00 pm

A Far Cry beckons you on a sonic journey to Stonehenge. The early light of the emerging dawn pulses and shimmers on granite, awakening the bucolic English countryside. This concert is crafted to evoke and transport you to the enigmatic, pre-historic monument by way of musical selections which draw inspiration from the rising sunlight, the sculptures of Isamu Noguchi, and nature itself.

“Wiancko’s Vox Petra was the basis of the program. Inspired by Japanese-American sculptor Isamu Noguchi, the work ends in a way that’s playful but also quite touching, with the sounds of chiseling and sweeping. Thorvaldsdottir evokes the sunrise and with Beethoven you get a glimpse of life in the country. Ultimately though I think all the pieces are exploratory in nature, conjuring up that sense of wonder that a place like Stonehenge inspires.”
