    Kronos Quartet Exhibition Opens at New York Public Library at Lincoln Center

    Kronos Quartet, as part of its just-launched 40th Anniversary Season in 2013–14, is the subject of a special exhibition at the New York Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center, in the Plaza Corridor Gallery. The exhibition, titled For the Record: The World of Kronos on Nonesuch Records, opened last night and runs through August 30. For the Record features original album artwork, composers' manuscripts and materials, historic performance photos, audio samples, tour memorabilia, and posters. The exhibition recognizes Kronos Quartet's having charted new territory for the string quartet, commissioning more than 800 new works and arrangements, collaborating with musicians from around the globe, presenting education programs, and touring world-wide—all through its nonprofit Kronos Performing Arts Association. For directions and schedule, visit nypl.org.

    For the Record is presented in conjunction with Kronos' co-curating of KRONOS at 40, a five-day program starting July 24 and comprising 28 free performances on Lincoln Center’s plazas during the opening week of this year’s Lincoln Center Out of Doors festival. Described as a “festival within a festival,” KRONOS at 40 was curated in collaboration with Kronos and Bill Bragin, Lincoln Center’s Director of Public Programming. Kronos’ programs include ten premieres (including eight newly commissioned works), plus collaborations with dance, pop musicians and beyond-genre performers including Dan Deacon and Jherek Bischoff. The week also features My Brightest Diamond, Dan Zanes, Superhuman Happiness, a new work for 80 dancers set to Kronos’ recordings by Mark Dendy Dance & Theater Projects, and many others. For more information, visit lcoutofdoors.org.

"Daringly ambitious and full of joy," says the Evening Standard. "Mass exposure to his glorious, life-affirming American Utopia show alone would make the world a better place," says the Scotsman.
