The Knights
A Vivaldi sinfonia, a chamber symphony by Thomas Adès, premieres of works co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall, and daring new takes on music from Middle East, Balkan, and klezmer sources—it’s just the kind of program audiences have grown to expect and love from The Knights, an ensemble acclaimed for its “voracious musical appetite” (Chicago Classical Review). This “adventurous orchestral collective” (The Baltimore Sun) is joined by Syrian clarinetist Kinan Azmeh for an exotic musical journey.

Part of: Chamber Sessions III
