Known for programs that juxtapose new and old works, The Knights were inspired by a comment that
composer Morton Feldman made a year before his death about how Franz Schubert brought listeners
to "hover … in a register you've never heard." The chamber group's takes on Feldman, Philip Glass and
Schubert certainly glow with atmosphere (Schubert's Third and Eighth Symphonies make up the bulk
of the recording). But it's Feldman's "Madame Press Died Last Week at Ninety" -- a brief elegy for the
composer's childhood piano teacher -- that is rendered most lovingly.
