Since its inception, the Kronos Quartet has combined a spirit of fearless exploration with a commitment to expand the range and context of the string quartet. In the process, Kronos has become one of the most celebrated and influential groups of our time, collaborating with many of the world's most eclectic composers and performers. Kronos returns to Carnegie Hall on March 28 with several special guests to celebrate its 40th anniversary, performing commissioned works by favorite composers and collaborators, including a world premiere and Carnegie Hall commission by Terry Riley, a New York premiere by Philip Glass, plus works by Laurie Anderson, Jherek Bischoff, Clint Mansell, and others. The celebration also includes the world premiere of a short film by Sam Green.
