THE KNIGHTS CD RELEASE AT LE POISSON ROUGE MAY 3

04.30.10
The Knights

Celebrate the release of New Worlds, the second album from The Knights on SONY Classical, Monday May 3 at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City. The "spirited young chamber orchestra" (New York Times) will play a program that includes “Garmoshka,” by Lev Zhurbin, known as Ljova: Gabriela Lena Frank’s “Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout”; Dvorak’s “Silent Woods”; the first movement of Schubert’s Symphony No. 3; and one of Satie’s Gymnopédies as orchestrated by Debussy. The New Yorker notes that "the players in this exciting young chamber orchestra, conducted by Eric Jacobsen, marry well-honed classical technique to a dynamic, contemporary style." You might catch New Worlds on WQXR (105.9FM New York) before the concert as it is the Full Rotation: Featured album of the Week.
