Do you think a little Beethoven might help calm your nerves on your subway commute? Than you’ll like what 21C is reporting: today, as part of the Make Music Winter Festival, The Knights “will perform back-to-back renditions of the Prelude from Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1 on all the station platforms of the Coney Island-bound F-train. Riders will be able to listen to the music as they wait on the platform, and will then hear snippets of the same music from inside the train whenever the doors open at a station.”
Sound delightful? We think it does!
On New Year’s Eve, you can hear more from The Knights at 92nd Street Y. We’re making sure, writes The New Yorker, “that the Upper East Side will not lack for music on the last night of the year, presenting the dynamic Brooklyn chamber orchestra the Knights in its house début.” The Knights will perform two seminal works: Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 and Terry Riley’s In C.
Time Out New York declared it one of the “Best New Year’s Eve concerts in NYC.”
Join this “ebullient and virtuous ensemble” on New Year’s Eve at 92Y, with a champagne toast during intermission.
