Notes & Reviews:

Together for the first time since their highly acclaimed 2010 recording New Worlds, renowned cellist Jan Vogler and New York-based orchestra, The Knights are back with their new recording, Ludwig van Beethoven: Triple Concerto & Symphony No. 5. On this recording, Beethoven is rediscovered in a new way through Vogler's and The Knights' interpretations and emanate the very values which the composer expressed for eternity.

Ever since choosing to devote his career to the cello, Jan Vogler has been constantly working on expanding the spectrum of his artistry and refining his musical language in an ongoing dialogue with renowned contemporary composers and performers. Recognized for his "rapturously heartfelt playing" (Washington Post ), Vogler's distinguished career has featured him with many internationally acclaimed orchestras such as the New York Philharmonic, the Chicago, Boston and Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestras and the Vienna Symphony. A prolific and multi award-winning artist, Vogler is the General Director of the Dresden Music Festival.

Praised for their "polished performances and imaginative programming" (New York Times ), The Knights are a "supremely talented" (Gramophone) orchestra of friends from a broad spectrum of the New York music world. Led by an open-minded spirit of camaraderie and exploration, they expand the orchestral concert experience with programs that encompass their roots in the Classical tradition and their passion for musical discovery. They have been hailed as "the future of classical music in America" by the Los Angeles Times.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
The three soloists perform admirably in the Triple Concerto, with attractive timbres and a spontaneous sounding give-and-take. The symphony is brisk, with a no-nonsense air about it. The andante that follows flows nicely and III impresses with its drive and vigor.
