Kronos Quartet
Featuring the Brooklyn Youth Orchestra 

“Boisterously breaking down nearly every conceivable genre barrier...[Kronos Quartet] has changed our perception of not just what a string quartet can be, but what music can be in the 21st century global village.”
—Musical America

Pioneering contemporary music ensemble Kronos Quartet (More Than Four, 2007 Next Wave) returns to BAM with a heartfelt program comprising 12 compositions-including works by Michael Gordon, Terry Riley, Osvaldo Golijov and Gustavo Santaolalla, and John Oswald-plus gripping arrangements of traditional songs from around the globe. This stirring collection of works reflects upon those instances where traditional language fails us, and music steps in to restore what violinist David Harrington refers to as "equilibrium in the midst of imbalance."
