Overview

Label Manager Megumi Stohs continues: ''Having our own label provides the utmost flexibility to create and release our musical experience to the world in a way that is beautiful inside and out, and to find a unique expression for every project. We are thrilled now to share our whole process – from the spark of a Crier's idea, to the creation of a program, through the rehearsing, the concert, the recording process, and finally the completed realization of that initial spark: something you can hold in your hand and share with the world.”

Audiophile quality is the hallmark of Crier Records; every recording will be released in both standard and high resolution versions, such as DSD. The album Dreams & Prayers was nominated for the 2015 Grammy award for best chamber music/small ensemble performance. The recording century-hops over a millennium of music, juxtaposing A Far Cry’s own arrangements of music by Hildegard von Bingen and Ludwig van Beethoven with recent works by Mehmet Ali Sanlıkol (created for and premiered by A Far Cry) and Osvaldo Golijov (an arrangement receiving its first recording by A Far Cry). This premiere release on Crier Records consists entirely of premiere recordings.
