12. the ground beneath our feet

The first Warner Classics release from The Knights – the eclectic Brooklyn-based orchestral collective – illuminates Stravinsky’s Bach-inspired concerto grosso ‘Dumbarton Oaks’ – with pieces by Bach himself, Steve Reich, Colin Jacobsen (violinist and co-Artistic Director of The Knights) and Siamak Aghaei (a virtuoso on the Persian santur), and by The Knights en masse: their piece, the ground beneath our feet fuses Baroque, salsa, Irish reel, gypsy, Indian raga and free jam.

The album takes its name from the ground beneath our feet, the 15-minute piece that concludes the programme. Conceived on a collaborative basis by The Knights themselves, it grows organically from a four-bar ground bass (a repeated motif that runs through the piece) by the Italian Baroque composer Tarquinio Merula and is flavoured with an eclectic mix of musical styles … salsa, Irish reel, gypsy, Indian raga and free jam.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR THE KNIGHTS – THE GROUND BENEATH OUR FEET

“All those clichés duly set up and ticked off, the first album from the Knights at their new home of Warner Classics hums with panache […] listening to them is pleasure.” The Times ****
