The Knights are dedicated to transforming the orchestral experience and eliminating barriers between audience and music. The New York Times has described them as “an adventurous young orchestra that has established a strong reputation for polished performances and imaginative programming.” The ensemble performs the world premiere of a new work by Anna Clyne and the Brahms String Sextet No. 2 in G, Op. 36.

“On one level, classical music concerns a dialogue between old and new. This is a programming specialty of the Knights …” — The Washington Post

Join us for an in-depth exploration of Shirley Graham Du Bois’ opera, Tom-Tom written while the composer, playwright, and activist was a student at Oberlin in 1932. Tom-Tom was the first opera written and staged by an African American woman and the work has not been produced since its initial run. All that survives of the score is an incomplete piano-vocal reduction. In this livestream, soprano Candice Hoyes, baritone Markel Reed, and pianist Kyle Walker perform excerpts from the score. Following the performance, Caroline Jackson Smith, Professor of Theater and Africana Studies at Oberlin College, moderates a panel discussion considering the opera’s complex representations of race, gender and history. Harvard lecturer Lucy Caplan, originally produced this event at Harvard in 2018, will join the panel alongside the three performers.

We welcome back composer/conductor Rob Kapilow for another installment of his “What Makes It Great” series. Pianist Michael Brown joins him to delve into Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 8 in C Minor, Op. 13, “Pathétique.” During this livestream program, Kapilow will deconstruct, slow down, and reassemble this Beethoven masterwork, one of Beethoven’s most popular sonatas, followed by a complete performance by Michael Brown and a Q&A session with both artists (and you!).

To participate in the audience Q&A session, use the live chat box on the right side of the video on YouTube. If you have a YouTube or Google account, you will need to be logged in, or you can sign up for a free account on YouTube.

 

“Because Kapilow is so good at what he does, knowledge about how music actually works, how it is put together — as opposed to dry facts about composers’ lives — doesn’t fly away with the whirlwind, but instead lodges in the memory, where they can grow.” — Boston Globe

The 75th Summer Season comes to a close with our resident ensemble, Orchestra of St. Luke’s led by the dynamic conductor Karina Canellakis making her Caramoor debut. Violinist Leonidas Kavakos joins the orchestra for Beethoven’s Violin Concert in D Major. Kavakos’ recent recording of the concerto garnered praise from The Guardian who summed up the performance by saying, “with his sweet, powerful tone and technical precision, Kavakos treats the performance as conversation rather than combat, decorating and accompanying as much as leading the musical argument.”

“I doubt if there is more than a handful of violinists alive who can match Kavakos in the tonal variety, accuracy and speed of his harmonics, or in the deft alternation of bowing and left-hand pizzicato.” — Gramophone

Hailed as one of America’s greatest living songwriters, Josh Ritter makes his Caramoor debut as part of his A Book of Gold Thrown Open tour. In this intimate solo concert, he performs some of his quieter, more narrative songs often missing from his typical set lists, in addition to new music.

“Harking back to Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and maybe a little Mark Knopfler, Mr. Ritter has always been a slinger of serious ideas and high-flown imagery.” — The New York Times
