Dark by Five is the classical ensemble that performs with Gros Morne Summer Music each year. The group of musicians travel from around the world to gather in Gros Morne, where they take pieces of music that are usually performed by huge orchestras and figure out how to perform them as an eight piece ensemble. It is very cool.
This is the second movement of Shostakovich’s tenth symphony, as arranged for Dark by Five by their percussionist, Paul Fadoul. The members of Dark by Five include Christine Carter, Diederik van Dijk, Paul Fadoul, Elizabeth Janzen, Lynn Kuo, David Maggs, and Kate Read.
Recorded live at St. Pat’s in Woody Point, NL in July 2015. Thanks to Michael Moulton for audio assistance.
