For more than 40 years, Kronos Quartet has combined a spirit of fearless exploration with a commitment to continually re-imagining the string quartet experience, becoming one of the most celebrated and influential groups of our time. They will perform works commissioned for their Fifty for the Future initiative together with string quartets from Kaufman Music Center’s Face the Music, the acclaimed youth ensemble the New York Times calls “a force in the New York new-music world.”
