The Kronos Quartet
Tuesday, October 10, 2023 | 
7:30 p.m.
Memorial Hall

“…a wellspring for hundreds of new music commissions. Some (of those have become) iconic pieces of repertoire…No one is ever going to say that Kronos Quartet is satisfied with the string quartet status quo.” - The New York Times

-  BBC Music Magazine’s Ten Greatest String Quartet Ensembles of All Time

-  Commissioned more new works and attracted more new audiences than any other ensemble.

-  At 14, Kronos founder David Harrington realized that, “all the quartets I’d played up until that point – by Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert – had been written by four white guys of the same religion who all lived in a tiny geographical area.” He thought that there must be more. Kronos is about the “more.”
