A Far Cry
September 27, 2011
Dynamic Chamber Music Ensemble
“...a lush, sweet sound that is achingly alive and emotional.”
Hailed by the Boston Globe as one of Boston’s most promising classical
music groups, A Far Cry performs with the freedom and flexibility of a
string quartet – and the power and beauty of an orchestra.
This groundbreaking group, a 15- to 18-piece string orchestra, transcends the traditional boundaries of classical music, experimenting with how it’s prepared, performed and experienced. The young musicians operate with rotating leadership and no conductor; all artistic decisions are made by vote.
Recently named Chamber Orchestra in Residence at Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, A Far Cry also maintains a busy touring schedule across the U.S. The group also holds an educational partnership with the New England Conservatory. Making extraordinary music according to their own rules, A Far Cry is enjoying a heady ascent toward the highest ranks of today’s new generation of classical ensembles.
