  • About This Album

    This two-disc set offers highlights from Kronos Quartet’s first decade on Nonesuch. The “supercharged group of musical pioneers” (Los Angeles Times) displays astonishing stylistic breadth, interpreting work by composers ranging from Terry Riley to Jimi Hendrix, Raymond Scott to Steve Reich.
