Selections from Codex Calixtinus
Bach: Concerto for Two Violins in D Minor
Beecher: The Conference of the Birds (premiere) 
Pärt: Tabula Rasa

The Conference of the Birds is an exploration of the very heart of A Far Cry - the concept of dynamic shared leadership. Lembit Beecher's new work references this idea in the context of an old Persian story, and a duo of double concertos, featuring soloists from the ensemble, embody it on the stage.
