A Far Cry, the self-conducted chamber orchestra that has taken the Boston music scene by storm, brings its season story to a glorious climax in this concert of extremes. Desolation and the danger of isolation give way to reconciliation and finally exuberance in community. This concert features a large orchestra for Copland’s beloved Appalachian Spring and new arrangements of JPP’s spectacular Finnish fiddling.
Don Carlo Gesualdo: Moro Lasso, arr. AFC
Bernard Hermann: Suite from Psycho
Aaron Copland: Suite from Appalachian Spring
JPP: Suite of Finnish dance music, arr. AFC
