As WQXR's ensemble-in-residence, The Knights spent several days rehearsing in The Greene Space, the multimedia performance space and broadcast studio on the ground floor of WQXR's studios on Varick Street. In these two videos, the musicians run through Franz Schubert's beloved Octet and Osvaldo Golijov's Lullaby and Doina, a piece built on a Yiddish lullaby and wild gypsy themes.
