The Knights will perform pieces by three contemporary composers to close out the season: Caroline Shaw, Thomas Adès, and a DC premiere by Azmeh. Shaw, a former Dumbarton Oaks Musician in Residence, is a New York-based musician and composer and the youngest recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Music for her Partita for 8 Voices. Adès is a highly praised British composer, who is known for his operas, orchestral, and chamber works. Azmeh has composed solo, chamber, and orchestral works, including commissions for Yo-Yo Ma and Juilliard, as well as pieces for film and dance. He has performed at such renowned venues as the Opéra Bastille in Paris, the United Nations General Assembly, and Lincoln Center.
