“No string quartet has ever been so popular or has had so wide an audience, globally and culturally” (Los Angeles Times). The trailblazing Kronos Quartet continues to rewrite the rules of the string quartet, proving time and again the urgent relevance of the beloved art form. In its anticipated return to Carnegie Hall, the ensemble showcases its virtuosity and adventuresome spirit across a diverse collection of works written or arranged for the quartet—including four pieces co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall as part of Kronos Quartet’s singular Fifty for the Future project.
