    Kronos Quartet Wins Edison Klassiek Awards Career Achievement Prize
    Jay Blakesberg

    Congratulations to Kronos Quartet, which has won the prestigious Ouevreprijs—career achievement prize—at the Edison Klassiek Awards. Kronos previously received Edisons for the albums Black Angels in 1991 and Kronos Caravan in 2001. With the Ouevreprijs, it is being honored for its achievements over the past forty-five years. "Since the first performance in 1973," says the award jury, "Kronos Quartet has recorded more than fifty albums, invariably filled with new notes for the string quartet. It is high time to crown this unique achievement with an Edison Klassiek Ouevreprijs."

    The Edison Award is the annual Dutch prize given for outstanding achievements in the music industry and is one of the oldest music awards in the world. The awards will be presented in a ceremony and concert in Amsterdam during the live broadcast of Podium Witteman on NPO 2 on Sunday, November 24. For additional details, visit edisons.nl.

    You can find details on Kronos Quartet's nearly thirty-five-year catalog of Nonesuch recordings, from Philip Glass's Mishima soundtrack in 1985 to the just-released recording of Terry Riley's Sun Rings, here.

    Lake Street Dive has released a new song, "Making Do," and an accompanying video, which you can watch here. "'Making Do' is about the world that future generations are inheriting," says the band. "We are all concerned about what is happening to our planet, so the song explores what arises when we consider both our role in it and our responsibility to address it. Hopefully it comes through as a rallying cry to do the best you can with what you have." The video comprises clips from fans and a cameo by Senator Ed Markey, a co-sponsor of the Green New Deal.

    Rhiannon Giddens has teamed with composer Michael Abels (Get Out) and members of the Met Opera Chorus and Nashville Ballet for a new interpretation of her song "Cry No More," which she first wrote and released in the wake of the 2015 Charleston church shooting. Following the murder of Breonna Taylor, Giddens re-recorded the track to emphasize its timeliness with added fervor, as she makes a plea for unity against injustice. You can watch the new video here.
