“Few ensembles are as adept at mixing old and new as the dynamic Brooklyn orchestra The Knights.” The New Yorker

“Sweet-voiced mandolin, played with rare grace, guts, flair and daring by Avi Avital…” The Times (U.K.)

The trailblazing Israeli mandolin virtuoso Avi Avital and soulful Syrian clarinetist/composer Kinan Azmeh team up with The Knights, “one of Brooklyn’s sterling cultural products” (The New Yorker), for a performance that is “nothing short of electric” (The New York Times). The Knights’ vibrant performances encompass the collective’s roots in the classical tradition while displaying their passion for artistic discovery. A&L is proud to co-commission a triple concerto for clarinet, mandolin and violin, included in an extraordinary program that crosses into the worlds of Middle Eastern, Balkan, klezmer and jazz music.
