Sunday Concert Series

A Far Cry, the Gardner’s resident chamber orchestra

January 28, 2018, 1:30 pm
Calderwood Hall

The Gardner’s resident chamber orchestra returns to kick off the 2018 concert season with their program Guardians of the Groove. Dvorak’s Serenade is in many ways a stylistic departure; often rhythmically-based, his writing here is mostly lyrical. A Far Cry will bring some of his signature groove back, inspired by a first half of dance music: an IDM (intelligent dance music) set by Sufjan Stevens, and a suite by the leader of the original string dance band, Louis XIV’s court composer Jean-Baptiste Lully.


“Guardians of the Groove”

  • Lully, Suite from Acis et Galatée
  • Sufjan Stevens, Suite from Run Rabbit Run
  • Dvořák, Serenade for Strings, Op. 22
