    When Kronos Quartet returns to Carnegie Hall next month, the group will give the world premiere performance of label mate Fernando Otero's El Cerezo (The Cherry Tree), which the Argentinean-born composer wrote for Kronos.

    The program for the February 22 concert in Carnegie's Zankel Hall will also feature the first public performance of John Adams's Fellow Traveler, which the composer wrote at Kronos' request for Peter Sellars's 50th birthday; the world premiere of two Carnegie Hall co-commissions, including one by the recipient of the fourth Kronos Under 30 Project commission; and the New York premiere of Clint Mansell's Requiem for a Dream Suite.
