“Bach articulated the language of music in the most complete and richest and complex form that any single person has ever been able to do,” says Philip Glass, the iconic American composer whose own prodigious body of work and fascination with form and repetition compares to that of Bach. Boston-based chamber orchestra A Far Cry makes their Miller debut, joining pianist Simone Dinnerstein for the New York premiere of Glass’s Piano Concerto No. 3, written for them.
