    Kronos Quartet's "Music of Vladimir Martynov" Now Streaming in Full on Kronos Website

    Music of Vladimir Martynov, the latest album from Kronos Quartet, which was release on Nonesuch earlier this week, is now streaming in full on group's website, kronosquartet.org, through next Thursday, January 19. The album includes three works written or rescored for Kronos by the contemporary Russian composer Vladimir Martynov—The Beatitudes (1998, rescored for Kronos, 2006), Schubert–Quintet (Unfinished) (2009), and Der Abschied (2006)—and features a special guest performance from former Kronos cellist Joan Jeanrenaud. Kronos’ artistic director and founder David Harrington says Martynov’s music “straddles various points of musical history and time; the music seems to me to reflect and absorb humanity in such a beautiful way.” Listen to Music of Vladimir Martynov in full at kronosquartet.org and purchase the album there and in the Nonesuch Store today.

    David Harrington was interviewed on BBC World Service’s flagship arts show The Strand last night. He discussed the new record and Kronos’ upcoming week-long residency of concerts and creative learning events at the Barbican in London. You can listen to the episode, in which Harrington’s segment begins about 10:30 in, at bbc.co.uk.

    Kronos Quartet is currently in Novi Sad, Serbia, performing Steve Reich's WTC 9/11 at the Serbian National Theater. Also on the program is the European premiere of Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right," arranged by Philip Glass with additional orchestration by Kronos. The Quartet will give the Polish premiere of WTC 9/11 this Sunday in Gdansk and the French premiere at Cité de la musique in Paris on Wednesday. For more information, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour.
