Live from Caramoor: The Knights and Gil Shaham
Sunday, September 21, 2014
Caramoor's Venetian Theater was the setting for a live broadcast by the Knights chamber orchestra with violin soloist Gil Shaham. Listen to the archived show above.
Shaham is the soloist in Prokofiev's Violin Concerto No. 2 in G, Op. 63, one of four works on the program that gets its inspiration from folk themes. First up is Prokofiev's Overture on Hebrew Themes, Op. 34. The second half is then devoted to a pair of works by Dvorak: Excerpts from Cypresses for string quartet, and the Symphony No. 7. Elliott Forrest hosts.
