News & Reviews

  • Kronos Quartet—whose 50th anniversary concert season culminates with the group's ninth annual hometown Kronos Festival at SFJAZZ in San Francisco through Sunday—has released several of its classic Nonesuch Records titles remastered in Spatial Audio on Apple Music Classical. You can hear Black Angels; Pieces of Africa; Howl, U.S.A.; Kronos Caravan; Nuevo; Terry Riley's Sun Rings; and Steve Reich's Different Trains, Triple Quartet, and WTC 9/11 in Spatial Audio on Apple Music Classical now. And check out Kronos founder and violinist David Harrington's interview with Apple Music Classical, about the quartet and its legacy, in the Kronos Quartet Essentials playlist.

  • The Library of Congress has acquired the collection of manuscripts, instruments, costumes, video and audio recordings, and more from Kronos Quartet and its non-profit organization, Kronos Performing Arts Association. “It’s gratifying to know that Kronos’ legacy will be preserved in perpetuity alongside the manuscripts and other treasures of so many other influential musicians from the US and around the world," said KPAA Executive Director Janet Cowperthwaite. "We are perhaps even more excited to reflect upon all the musicians and scholars who will have access to these materials in years to come, informing their own work and carrying Kronos’ inspiration and influence into the future.” The Library also appointed Kronos founder, artistic director, and violinist David Harrington as the Kluge Chair in Modern Culture and inducted Kronos’ 1992 album Pieces of Africa into the National Recording Registry.
