Episode 131 - a ConcertCast Event with A Far Cry

Classical music is pretty much the only music in the world that still sounds beautiful when the musicians are tuning up. It sounded so great we decided to start the episode with a brief tuning session.

We were joined by Megumi Lewis, Omar Chen Guey, Caitlin Lynch, Jae Cosmos Lee, Michael Unterman and Jason Fisher, several of The Criers from the Boston based chamber orchestra A Far Cry.

We invited these fine musicians to City Winery Boston for another live ConcertCast.

Founded in 2007, A Far Cry has been nominated for three Grammys. Playing music from various time periods they incorporate both new and time tested works with the goal “to wrestle the music they love back from the cultural baggage it's accumulated”.

Throughout the episode you will hear movements of Dvorak’s Terzetto, played by Jae Cosmos Lee, Omar Chen Guey and Jason Fisher. Caitlyn Lynch then joins Jason and Jae for a conversation with us and they answer a few questions from the audience.

The final piece they play by Brahms is published separately as part of our In Concert Series above.

They both sound absolutely beautiful.

Pieces:

ConcertCast: Antonín Dvorák : The Terzetto in C, Op. 74 (B. 148)

In Concert Series: (separate episode) Johannes Brahms, Viola Quintet in G Major, Op. 111
