    Kronos Quartet Announces Details for Kronos: Under 30 Project's Fifth Edition
    Michael Wilson

    Kronos Quartet has announced the details of the fifth edition of the Kronos: Under 30 Project, a commissioning program designed to support the creation of new music by young artists. The deadline is November 16, 2012; applications may be downloaded from the group's website, kronosquartet.org.

    The Kronos: Under 30 Project was created in 2003, Kronos’ 30th anniversary year, to support the creation of new work by young artists, and to help Kronos cultivate stronger connections and develop lasting artistic relationships with the next creative generation. Four pieces have been commissioned through Kronos: Under 30 so far. Since the program’s inception, nearly 1,000 applications from 49 countries on six continents have been received.

    Kronos will review all the applications and select the composer to whom they feel most artistically committed. That composer will be commissioned to write a new work for the quartet, which will premiere in Spring 2014 as a part of Kronos' 40th anniversary season. Applications are open to all composers, regardless of nationality, who are under 30 years of age as of November 16, 2012. (More info about the project, including mailing address for submissions, will be available in September.) The selected composer must be able to complete the new work by December 2013.

    Over the past 10 years, four composers from three different countries—Alexandra du Bois, Felipe Pérez Santiago, Dan Visconti, and Aviya Kopelman—have been commissioned, and Kronos has performed the commissioned works all over the world.

    Composer, pianist, and singer Gabriel Kahane makes his Nonesuch debut with the release of Book of Travelers on August 24, 2018; vinyl September 7. The album comprises his ten-song musical travelogue about the looping railway journey across the US he embarked upon the day after the 2016 Presidential election. He left behind his cell phone and other internet-connected devices, spending two weeks with dozens of strangers whose stories are woven into the cycle. Pre-order to download the track "November" now and get a limited-edition signed print. Kahane tours this fall and winter.

    Olivia Chaney's new album, Shelter, is out now on Nonesuch. Produced by Thomas Bartlett, the album is eight original songs plus Chaney's takes on songs by Purcell and the Everly Brothers. She has also released a video for the track "House on a Hill," filmed at the rustic, 18th-century cottage in the hills of the North Yorkshire Moors where she made the record. Watch it here. The Observer cites Chaney's "dazzling vocals" and calls Shelter "an elegant, luminous album." Uncut calls it "transcendent refuge from the storm." The Daily Mirror says it's "a triumph." Chaney performs in London on June 19; tickets are on sale now for her North American summer tour.
