A Far Cry hands you an unlabeled mix tape—and invites you to a new kind of concert experience. A chance for Prokofiev to rub shoulders with Biber, for Andrew Norman to volley with Tchaikovsky, for Mozart to wink at Daft Punk. We've wracked our brains, argued passionately for our faves, and narrowed it down to our favorites.  Selections from every possible style - each one flowing into the next.
