News & Reviews

  • A Thousand Thoughts, a live documentary with the Kronos Quartet, written and directed by filmmakers Sam Green and Joe Bini—which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2018 and has been performed around the world—will continue to tour the US in the coming weeks and months: in Urbana, Nashville, Austin, Detroit, and New York City. The multimedia performance piece blends live music and narration with archival footage and filmed interviews to tell Kronos's story. "It's as magical an amalgamation as you can imagine," exclaims the Los Angeles Times.

  • Congratulations to Punch Brothers, Laurie Anderson, and Kronos Quartet, all of whom won Grammy Awards on Sunday! Punch Brothers' new album, All Ashore, won the Grammy Award for Best Folk Album, the band's first Grammy Award. Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet's collaboration Landfall won the Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music / Small Ensemble Performance, Anderson's first Grammy Award.

    Kronos returns to the work of South African composer Kevin Volans. This piece, notes the New York Times, “moves freely among African rhythmic and melodic shapes, contemporary Western harmonies and tone-shaping techniques, and distorted glimpses of Haydnesque Classicism.”
