    Watch: The Greene Space Revisits Kronos Quartet 40th Anniversary Concert

    Kronos Quartet gave a concert and Q&A in celebration of its 40th anniversary at WNYC/WQXR's The Greene Space in New York City on March 24, 2014. The venue revisited the special event with a lunchtime encore stream today. "For forty years, the Kronos Quartet has been reimagining the string quartet experience," said host Helga Davis. "They've performed thousands of concerts worldwide, and their list of collaborators is a who's who of twentieth and twenty-first century music." You can watch it again here:

    The concert came just before the April 2014 Nonesuch release of two recordings celebrating Kronos's 40th anniversary year: the box set Kronos Explorer Series comprising five classic albums from five different parts of the world, which the Independent called "extraordinary," and a new album, A Thousand Thoughts, which looks at the group's geographically wide-ranging sources, featuring music from 14 different countries, which led Songlines to call Kronos "one of the musical marvels of our age."

    Lianne La Havas's new, self-titled album has made the Best Albums of 2020 lists of the New York Times and NPR Music. Its songs are "brimming with poised musicality," writes the Times's Jon Pareles. "Graceful melodies, supple guitar syncopations, sophisticated harmonies and a voice that can sparkle with anticipation or cry out in pain capture all the hope and heartache of her narrative." NPR's Suraya Mohamed says: "The songs on this album, La Havas' third and perhaps best, reveal how her sophisticated artistry is made of not just brilliantly crafted lyrics, but a rich musicality, full with gorgeous harmonic voicings, catchy rhythms and soulful melodies."
