Kronos Quartet and Friends
40th Anniversary Celebration
Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
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 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.
This concert is part of My Time, My Music.
