Shostakovich: Chamber Symphony Op. 110a
*Jones: Double Concerto (East Coast Premiere)
Adams: Shaker Loops
*featuring Kip Jones, violin, and Karl Doty, bass
In this passionate program, A Far Cry explores some of the most intimate chambers of the heart. Shostakovich's Chamber Symphony (better known as his Eighth Quartet) guides the listener on a dark journey through oppression, fear, anger, and despair. Turning the coin, John Adams's "Shaker Loops" explores the prayerful, the physical, and the ecstatic. between these two works comes a new double concerto by Kip Jones (featuring Jones and Crier bassist Karl Doty) that seamlessly blends the gravity of classical music with the relaxed intimacy of the fiddling tradition.
