Songs written, commissioned for and performed by Gabriel Kahane

A set of brand-new, hot-off-the-press songs written expressly for singer/pianist/songwriter/composer Gabriel Kahane to perform. Composers include Timo Andres, Andrew Norman, Yotam Haber, Joseph Hallman, Chris Thile, Shara Worden, Paola Prestini, Brett Banducci, and Ted Hearne. The evening will also include a set of works written by Mr. Kahane himself, including the world premiere of a new work. Kahane will also sing and perform Schumann’s song cycle Dichterliebe from the piano, offering an innovative and personal interpretation of this extraordinary piece.

These world premiere works were generously commissioned by Linda and Stuart Nelson.

AFTER THE KNIGHTS SHOW… we invite you to stay at (Le) Poisson Rouge for a very special performance by MATA Alum Carla Kihlstedt’s band 2 FOOT YARD! 2 Foot Yard will be performing with members of the Knights Orchestra.

2 Foot Yard is a songwriting collective (Carla Kihlstedt- violin, voice, Marika Hughes- cello, voice, Shahzad Ismaily- drums, guitar). With their willfully limited instrumentation, they create intimate yet rich and dramatic worlds that elegantly maneuver between art song, rock song, and pop song. Their first cd was released on Tzadik, and their most recent, Borrowed Arms, was self-released and is available at www.CDBaby.com

They will be joined on several of their songs by New York’s most exciting young string quartet, Brooklyn Rider. (www.brooklynrider.com)
