The Kronos Quartet leads three emerging quartets in a
weeklong exploration of the string quartet repertoire that Kronos has
built over 35 years of commissioning new music. Virtuoso pipa player Wu Man joins as guest faculty, working with the quartets and two young pipa artists in some of Kronos's collaborative repertoire, including excerpts from Tan Dun's Ghost Opera and Terry Riley's The Cusp of Magic.A
master class in Weill Recital Hall and a final performance in Zankel
Hall on March 21, 2010 highlighted these works, plus others by Franghiz
Ali–Zadeh, Tan Dun, Michael Gordon, Agustín Lara, Aviya Kopelman, Carlos
Paredes, Astor Piazzolla, and Aleksandra Vrebalov.
