About

The Boston-based Grammy®-nominated string orchestra makes its Kennedy Center debut with a program of works by Pärt, Mozart, Elgar, and Tchaikovsky. As a self-conducted orchestra, A Far Cry operates democratically where decisions are made collectively and leadership rotates among the players, referred to as “Criers.” This structure has led to consistently thoughtful, innovative, and dynamic programming. The ensemble “brims with personality or, better, personalities, many and varied” (The New York Times), cultivating a unique, high-energy experience for audiences and players.

Program: 
ARVO PART
Cantus in Memory of Benjamin Britten
WOLFGANG AMADEUS MOZART
Serenade in D major, “Serenata Notturna”
EDWARD ELGAR
Introduction and Allegro for Strings
PYOTR ILYICH TCHAIKOVSKY
Serenade for Strings in C major

A Note from Joseph “Yossi” Kalichstein, Artistic Director of Fortas Chamber Music
The special sound of a small string ensemble with its magic combination of warmth, intimacy, and power inspired many composers to great creative heights. Mozart was unquestionably the master, but Elgar and Tchaikovsky (the latter, as rich in color, character, and sheer beauty as his greatest ballet scores) do not lag far behind. We welcome this magnificent group of Bostonians to the Kennedy Center for the first time.
