Hosted by Q2 Music's Helga Davis.
After selling out their earlier Ecstatic Music Festival show, the trailblazing Kronos Quartet returns for a second performance featuring more new repertoire from the ensemble's ambitious Fifty for the Future initiative. Drawing on more than forty years of collaboration with prominent and emerging composers from around the world, Fifty for the Future will create fifty works designed to guide young string quartets in developing and honing the skills required for the performance of 21st-century repertoire.
For this evening, Kronos Quartet presents new works by Laurie Anderson, Garth Knox, Fodé Lassana Diabaté (arr. Jacob Garchik), Kala Ramnath (arr. Reena Esmail), and Soo Yeon Lyuh. Kaufman Music Center’s acclaimed youth ensemble Face the Music opens the show with a work by Aleksandra Vrebalov.
