You may have heard of Kronos Quartet from their performance on the Requiem for a Dream soundtrack. Kronos’ recordings reflect its broad interests in jazz, world music, young composers, and film. The quartet has been awarded two Grammys and many of Kronos’ recordings have spent weeks at the top of Billboard’s Classical Chart.
Since its founding in 1973, the Kronos Quartet has become the foremost ambassador of contemporary chamber music, breaking down barriers between musical genres and between musicians and audiences. The quartet had commissioned more than 700 works and arrangements, and has partnered with many celebrated composers including Terry Riley, Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Henryk Górecki, Osvaldo Golijov, and Franghiz Ali-Zadeh.
