    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.

    Composer and multi-instrumentalist Jeff Parker's Suite for Max Brown is out now via a newly formed partnership between International Anthem and Nonesuch Records. The album, named for and dedicated to Parker's mother, features nine original songs as well as "Gnarciss," an interpretation of Joe Henderson's "Black Narcissus," and John Coltrane's "After the Rain." Parker plays the majority of the instruments on the record. "The veteran guitarist has created an effortlessly detailed album, full of tradition and experimentation that spans generations," says Pitchfork. "It lives at the vanguard of new jazz music."
