Then and Now

Then and Now

Presented by A Far Cry at St. John's Church, JP

Georgetown’s Dumbarton Oaks has been a private estate, a diplomatic meeting place, a research library and collection, and, for three-quarters of a century, a hotspot for contemporary music. The alchemy of combining musical thinkers with world-class collections of Byzantine and pre-Columbian art, exhibition gardens, and academic activity has been producing amazing results from Stravinsky through to the present day. Inspired by Dumbarton Oaks’ legacy, Then and Now explores the early and recent fruits of that alchemy. In addition to the St. John’s concert, this program will be repeated at Dumbarton Oaks featuring the world premiere of a new commission by 2021 Dumbarton Oaks Early-Career Musician David Crowell, in honor of the 75th anniversary of concerts at Dumbarton Oaks.

Musical Program:
Johann Sebastian Bach | Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 in F Major, BWV 1047
Samuel Barber | Capricorn Concerto, Op. 21
Igor Stravinsky | Concerto in E-flat Major, “Dumbarton Oaks”
Caroline Shaw | Entr’acte
David Crowell | Commission for AFC*
Jessie Montgomery | Strum
*A Far Cry will preview David Crowell’s new work on Apr. 2 at St. John’s Church; the World Premiere will take place at Dumbarton Oaks on Apr. 3.
