Cornell Concert Series: GRAMMY-nominated chamber orchestra A Far Cry with pinaist Simone Dinnerstein

Thursday, February 7, 2019 at 8:00pm to 10:00pm

Bailey Hall 230 Garden Ave, Ithaca, NY

A Far Cry stands at the forefront of an exciting new generation in classical music. The Grammy-nominated, self-conducted string orchestra “brims with personality or, better, personalities, many and varied” (The New York Times).  A Far Cry was founded in 2007 by a tightly-knit collective of 17 young professional musicians and has developed an innovative structure of rotating leadership both on stage and behind the scenes. They join forces with Simone Dinnerstein, a pianist whose solo career has included performances with the Vienna Symphony, New York Philharmonic, Atlanta Symphony, and many others. Together, they present a program of Bach’s Goldberg Variations: a re-imagining of one of Bach’s greatest works, juxtaposing the original keyboard part with its orchestral embodiment, creating a world of sonic possibilities.
