The Mind's Eye featuring Grammy-winning violist Kim Kashkashian
Presented by A Far Cry at NEC's Jordan Hall
March 7, 2014
A FAR CRY, the self-conducted chamber orchestra that has been taking the Boston music scene by storm, turns its focus inward on music that explores our very thoughts. Biber’s obsessive, repeating passacaglia, Prokofiev’s fleeting glimpses, Schnittke’s terrifying descent into madness, and Bach’s transcendent organization combine for an experience not to be missed.
Featuring the groundbreaking Grammy-winning violist Kim Kashkashian.
Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber: Passacaglia, arr. A Far Cry
Sergei Prokofiev: Visions Fugitives, arr. Barshai/Balashov?
Alfred Schnittke: Monologue for viola and strings
Johann Sebastian Bach: Ricercare a 6 from Musical Offering, arr. A Far Cry
A Far Cry stands at the forefront of an exciting new generation in classical music. With more than two hundred performances, three albums, and a European tour, they also serve as Chamber Orchestra in Residence at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
