At Caramoor: Muhly’s ‘Shrink’ with Kuusisto>>
July 30, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
July 30: Full details. The Caramoor summer festival — which is currently underway on an 80-acre estate in Katonah, N.Y., in northern Westchester County — is giving the New York premiere of composer Nico Muhly’s Shrink, featuring The Knights and Finnish “one-of-a-kind” violinist Pekka Kuusisto. It’s the only chance to hear the work in the U.S. until Feb. 15, 2022, when Kuusisto will perform it with Esa-Pekka Salonen and members of the LA Philharmonic at Walt Disney Hall. The Caramoor event is billed as an evening of musical exploration, ranging from traditional Finnish music and works by Philip Glass, and Arvo Pärt, in addition to Muhly. Other highlights: Aug. 1, Apollo’s Fire, Cleveland’s Baroque Orchestra, and Jeannette Sorrell return with a program of Venetian treats, including Vivaldi concertos, Monteverdi songs, and Barbara Strozzi’s 17th-century lament “Che si può fare” (“What can you do?”); Aug. 8, violinist Leonidas Kavakos and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s in a program of Bach concertos.
