The Kronos Quartet/Kronos Performing Arts Association has announced a new commissioning initiative—Fifty for the Future: The Kronos Learning Repertoire. Beginning in the 2015/16 season, it will commission a collection of 50 new works—ten per year for five years—devoted to the most recent approaches to the string quartet, designed expressly for the training of students and emerging professionals. The works will be commissioned from an eclectic group of composers—25 men and 25 women, including label mate Rhiannon Giddens. Carnegie Hall, lead partner in the project, has named Kronos Quartet holder of the Richard and Barbara Debs Creative Chair for the 2015/16 season; Kronos will perform at Zankel Hall and lead a week-long workshop with three young quartets in April 2016.Read morehttp://www.nonesuch.com/journal/punch-brothers-new-album-phosphorescent-blues-out-now-2015-0127Tuesday, January 27, 2015
Punch Brothers’ T Bone Burnett–produced new album, The Phosphorescent Blues. The album "shows off their eclectic sound," says NPR's Morning Edition. "The album mixes chamber-music intricacy, improvisational flash, lump-in-throat balladry, and a puckish Debussy cover," says the Boston Globe. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune says the new album features "some choral harmonies that are somewhere between the Beach Boys and heaven." The CBC calls the album "triumphant." "Listening to the Punch Brothers is an exercise in wonder," says the Irish Times. "The playing and harmonies are breathtaking. Enjoy." The Herald Scotland calls it "a quite masterly collection from a quintet of virtuosi."
