The Knights perform "Coqueteos" from Gabriela Lena Frank's Leyendas
Thursday, April 05, 2012
Our audience was treated to a special, once in a lifetime, experience during the Knights performance in The Greene Space. Sitting arms length from the musicians, the audience was able to feel a part of the orchestra.
The Knights sat not on our stage, but directly on the floor where audience members could immerse themselves in the music from one of New York's most innovative and acclaimed new chamber orchestras.
Hosted by Jeff Spurgeon, The Knights presented a varied program including Copland's beloved Appalachian Spring; selections from Peruvian composer Gabriela Lena Frank's Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout; and Debussy's orchestral arrangement of Satie's Gymnopédie, as featured on the ensemble's new album, The Knights: A Second of Silence.
