A Far Cry Concert: The Shape of Joy

A Far Cry – Boston’s Grammy-nominated, self-conducted string orchestra – is back with a series of online concerts to kick off its 2020-2021 Season. Join us for the Live Watch Party of The Shape of Joy, premiering Saturday, Nov. 21 at 8pm!

The uninhibited joy of young Mozart’s first viola quintet, with its flamboyant virtuosity and total lack of pretense, inspired this happy program. The piece, as written by the 17-year-old Mozart, is so forthright that it perfectly evokes the honesty of youth. The two opening duos reflect different aspects of joy. The first, Breathing Sunlight by Akshaya Tucker, is reflective and musically free, stirring memories of lying in the sunlit grass with the composer’s grandfather. Limestone & Felt
