Kronos Quartet

San Francisco’s Grammy Award-winning Kronos Quartet begin their first national tour for many years when they return to Colston Hall with a trademark programme of exciting new music. The programme includes Terry Riley’s One Earth, One People, One Love, the world premiere of a new piece by Martin Green of Lau, commissioned by Kronos after they saw him in Lau-Land, works by Laurie Anderson and Komitas, and arrangements including The Who’s Baba O’Riley.

The evening also features three UK premieres of music by Aleksandra Vrebalov, Garth Knox and Fodé Lassana Diabaté from the Kronos Fifty for the Future project, in which Serious partners Carnegie Hall and others to create 50 exciting new works for Kronos and then other string quartets to play in the future.

Kronos demonstrate a mastery of contemporary music styles from minimalism to metal, breaking down musical boundaries, and remaining unique in their progressive vision of chamber music.
