The Knights

“Few ensembles are as adept at mixing old and new as the dynamic Brooklyn orchestra The Knights,” says the New Yorker, and when Avital and Azmeh join the group, the result is “nothing short of electric.” (New York Times)

The trailblazing Israeli mandolin virtuoso Avi Avital and soulful Syrian clarinetist and composer Kinan Azmeh team up with The Knights for an extraordinary performance grounded in the classical tradition and crossing boundaries into the worlds of Middle Eastern, Balkan, klezmer, and jazz.
