• Bryce Dessner and Kronos Quartet Discuss 'Aheym'

    On March 28, the unmistakably fearless Grammy Award-winning ensemble Kronos Quartet celebrates its 40th anniversary, performing commissioned works by favorite composers and collaborators in Stern Auditorium. The program includes a world premiere and Carnegie Hall commission by Terry Riley, a New York premiere by Philip Glass, and a new work entitled Aheym (Homeward) by Bryce Dessner, guitarist of acclaimed Brooklyn-based band The National.

    Rolling Stone's David Pescovitz sat down with Bryce Dessner and Kronos Quartet violinist David Harrington to discuss the connection that led to their collaboration on Aheym and other works on their new recording of Dessner's music.
