2011 American Pianists Awards winner Aaron Diehl’s dual brilliance in jazz and classical music make him the ideal collaborator for The Knights in this sensational program probing the interconnectivity of these two sound worlds.
Diehl joins the ensemble for a pair of works that explore it best, Gershwin’s iconic, irresistible Rhapsody in Blue and genre-crossing trailblazer Mary Lou Williams’ Zodiac Suite. The program also features The Knights’ coupling of Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 with selections from Ravel’s Baroque-inspired but thoroughly modern Le Tombeau de Couperin, reflecting new light on a Bach jewel. Stravinsky’s dazzling, color-drenched Firebird Suite closes this joyful and breathtaking program.
