Tongue in Cheek

tongue-in-cheek-web Sometimes a bit of wry humor is just the thing for the craziness of Spring. Hindemith and Mozart bookend this musical roast, looking askance at the musical traditions of their times. Meanwhile, Boccherini gets his groove on, Farina channels cats, dogs, and roosters, and and Harvard composer/mathematician Noam Elkies shows us just how nutty a fugue can get, as A Far Cry concludes its season with a smile and a wink, tongue firmly in cheek.

Paul Hindemith: Suite from "Minimax," arr. AFC Carlo Farina: Capriccio Stravagante Luigi Boccherini: Fandango, G. 341 arr. AFC Noam Elkies: Allegro Troppo W. A. Mozart: Ein Musicalischer Spass
