Conducted by Eric JacobsenThe Knights are “one of Brooklyn’s sterling cultural products … known far beyond the borough for their relaxed virtuosity and expansive repertory” (The New Yorker). From classical staples to genre-expanding works by today’s top composers, they offer an irresistible feeling of comradery and artistic possibility. Hear Mozart’s Symphony No. 31; an original orchestration of Jessie Montgomery’s Rhapsody No. 2; a New York premiere by the “ingenious” Anna Clyne (BBC Music Review), featuring The Knights’ own Karen Ouzounian; and selected works by singer-songwriter and composer Gabriel Kahane, including the New York premiere of a piano concerto written for his father, renowned pianist Jeffrey Kahane.
