THE CONFERENCE OF THE BIRDS
featuring Stefan Jackiw and Alexi Kenney, violins
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 Stefan Jackiw and Alexi Kenney's duo of double concertos embody it on the stage.
