Product Notes

The Knights, the bold Brooklyn-based orchestral collective, embody the spirit of exploration with The Kreutzer Project, a program that posits Tolstoy's response to Beethoven's "Kreutzer" Sonata: What exactly is it? I don't understand. What is music? What does it do? And why does it do what it does? Beethoven and Tolstoy in turn inspired Czech composer Leoš Janácek, whose first string quartet is also called "Kreutzer Sonata". The Knights' response to these iconoclastic touchstones is to reimagine the Beethoven as "Kreutzer Concerto", arranged by The Knights' co-founder Colin Jacobsen who is also the orchestrated version's violin soloist; and the Janácek as orchestrated by The Knights' co-founder and conductor Eric Jacobsen. They keep the canon going with Colin's newly-composed "Kreutzings", which makes buried allusions to both Beethoven and Janácek; and a commission from Anna Clyne, whose piece "Shorthand" takes it's title from a line in Tolstoy's novella: "music is the shorthand of emotion".
