News & Reviews

  • Congratulations to Kronos Quartet, which has won the prestigious Ouevreprijs—career achievement prize—at the Edison Klassiek Awards. "Kronos Quartet has recorded more than fifty albums, invariably filled with new notes for the string quartet," says the jury. "It is high time to crown this unique achievement with an Edison Klassiek Ouevreprijs." The annual Dutch music prize will be presented in a ceremony and concert in Amsterdam during NPO 2's Podium Witteman on NPO 2 on November 24.

  • Kronos Quartet has shared a video for "One Earth, One People, One Love," from Sun Rings, the group's 2002 collaboration with composer Terry Riley of which Nonesuch released the first full recording earlier this year. (This week also marks the 30th anniversary of Kronos Quartet's first full-length Riley album for Nonesuch, Salome Dances for Peace.) Directed by Willie Williams, the new video was made by Treatment Studios for the Sun Rings multimedia live show, which Kronos has performed nearly fifty times in eleven countries and will do so again this concert season.

  • 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.”
