News & Reviews

  • Kronos Quartet and Rhiannon Giddens and Francesco Turrisi will perform free for Carnegie Hall's first-ever online festival, Voices of Hope, April 16–30. The two-week festival examines the life-affirming power of music and the arts during times of crisis through more than 100 events, including programming presented by Carnegie Hall and more than 40 cultural and academic institutions across New York City and beyond. Kronos Quartet performs works by Terry Riley and others on April 24, and Rhiannon Giddens and Francesco Turris perform from their new album, They're Calling Me Home, on April 28.

  • Clint Mansell's haunting score to director Darren Aronofsky's 2000 film Requiem for a Dream, performed by Kronos Quartet, has returned to vinyl for the film's twentieth anniversary year, out now. The soundtrack was originally released on Nonesuch in 2000; the first vinyl edition was released for Record Store Day in 2016 with new artwork and two previously unreleased bonus tracks. The new 2-LP vinyl edition, which also includes the bonus tracks, features the original 2000 soundtrack cover art for the anniversary. "Brilliant stuff," says Classic FM.

  • About This Album

    Works from Austrian composers Alban Berg and Anton Webern are prefaced by “a rare Liszt miniature” that, says the Chicago Tribune, reveals the Quartet's goal: to “convey the influence of Wagner down to the pupils of Arnold Schoenberg.”
