Described by the Boston Globe as "Thrilling" "Brilliant" and "Intrepid", this concert footage comes from Boston's self-conducted chamber orchestra, A FAR CRY's 2009-10 season opener, "The Lunatic" at the inimitable Jordan Hall inside New England Conservatory. Alfred Schnittke's haunting first Concerto Grosso for 2 violins, harpsichord, prepared piano and 21 strings was performed on the night before Holloween. A Far Cry is joined by the Uh-Mazing violinists, Nelson Lee & Meg Freivogel of the decorated Jupiter Quartet as soloists, along with Andrus Madsen pulling a double guest duty on harpsichord & prepared piano. Filmed live on October 30th, 2009 & edited by Simon C. Yue for A Far Cry. To view this performance in its entirety, click here:
