Come see the new Kronos at Kaufman residency in action when Kronos Quartet founder David Harrington gives a masterclass with two string quartets from Kaufman Music Center's youth new music ensemble, Face the Music: Pannonia Quartet and Quartet: This Side Up.
This year, four young Face the Music string quartets have had the unprecedented opportunity to develop a close mentoring relationship with Kronos Quartet, the Grammy-winning ensemble known for its adventurous approach, diverse repertoire and in-depth collaborations with many of the world’s foremost composers. The Quartet is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.
The members of Kronos Quartet will coach four Face the Music string quartets, who will perform music from Kronos’s vast repertoire and participate in innovative multi-media concert experiences – including a shared performance at Carnegie Hall on March 28, 2014 – that will advance Kronos’s mission to continually re-imagine the string quartet.
