Franz Joseph Haydn | String Quartet Op. 76, No. 2 in D minor, “Quinten”: I. Allegro
Quinn Mason
| String Quartet No. 2: II. Broken Scherzo
Featuring the Project STEP Honors Quartet

Ted Hearne | Law of Mosaics
Juantio Becenti | The Glittering World (new commission)

A Far Cry presents the world premiere of a new commission by Juantio Becenti that portrays Diné Bahane’, the Navajo creation story, in which “The People” (Diné) ascend through a series of mono-colored worlds into the current world of many colors, also known as “The Glittering World.” A pairing of two prismatic works, the Becenti evokes the refraction of light, and Ted Hearne’s Law of Mosaics (as featured on A Far Cry’s album of the same name) warps, magnifies, and shatters found musical material.
