This season, Boston’s Grammy-nominated, self-conducted chamber orchestra A Far Cry dedicates its series “Chamber Music with the Criers” to exploring “degenerate” music, music that was suppressed, segregated and banned during the Third Reich.

For our upcoming program, “Berlin,” AFC travels back in time to present a salon-style chamber music program that could have been heard in 1929 Berlin. Before WWII, Berlin was a lively cultural center—it would be impossible for these three composers to predict that their music would be considered as degenerate by the Nazis a few years later. Here, the musicians (known as “criers”) perform rarely heard jewels from a pre-war era that evoke the humor and passion of these master composers.
