Performance Today

with host Fred Child

Meet "A Far Cry"

The PT debut of a young and talented (and irreverent) chamber orchestra from Boston that calls itself "A Far Cry." They'll play Benjamin Britten's playful "Simple Symphony." And a rarely-played gem: the Sextet in C by Erno Dohnanyi. Fred explains *why* it's so rarely played (there's a good reason!), and we'll hear an exemplary performance by members of the Nash Ensemble, in concert in Boston.
