KRONOS QUARTET

November 2019

For 45 years, San Francisco’s Kronos Quartet – David Harrington (violin), John Sherba (violin), Hank Dutt (viola), and Sunny Yang (cello) – has pursued a singular artistic vision, combining a spirit of fearless exploration with a commitment to continually reimagine the string quartet experience. In the process, Kronos has become one of the most celebrated and influential groups of our time, performing thousands of concerts worldwide, releasing more than 60 recordings of extraordinary breadth and creativity, collaborating with many of the world's most accomplished composers and performers, and commissioning more than 1,000 works and arrangements for string quartet. Kronos has received over 40 awards, including both the Polar Music and Avery Fisher Prize, two of the most prestigious awards given to musicians. In 2018, the group became the first US-based musicians to receive the WOMEX (World Music Expo) Artist Award. Their latest release “Placeless” features Iranian Singers Mahsa and Marjan Vahdat.

KRONOS AND MAHSA VAHDAT PRESS—
"Real splendor... Iranian singer Mahsa Vahdat brought her luxuriant and richly expressive voice to three of her solo songs... these are songs of passion, love and sorrow—emotions that came through vividly. Vahdat’s vocal coloration, at once lush and piercing, and her sinuous turns of melodic phrase made for a riveting showcase.” – San Francisco Chronicle
