Happy 2012 from The Knights! With a New Year's Eve performance (at the lovely 92nd Street Y) behind us and recording sessions right around the corner, we are completely consumed with Beethoven right now--and so excited for this album to become a reality! Check out this sneak peek from a rehearsal of the last movement of Beethoven's Fifth. Is there any music more joyful than this?
During The Knights’ performance last summer, I witnessed this very thing in our audience. As the C Major music of the Finale swelled, a woman in the front row flushed and then in the third bar, she raised her head upwards, smiled, and tears began streaming down her face. In moments like these, the hours of rehearsal and practice come to mean something bordering on the mystical.
With our concerts last June, The Knights began a journey with Beethoven 5 that includes this new recording for Sony. I’m really looking forward to sharing that burst of joy with people around the world.
