Kronos Quartet: Five Decades
February 22, 2024
“The Kronos Quartet has broken the boundaries of what string quartets do”
– The New York Times
For five astounding decades, the multi-GRAMMY Award-winning Kronos Quartet has reimagined what the string quartet experience can be. Don’t miss one of our era’s most celebrated and influential groups with over 70 released recordings and thousands of concerts performed worldwide, live in Centennial Hall.
San Francisco’s Kronos Quartet—David Harrington (violin), John Sherba (violin), Hank Dutt (viola), and Paul Wiancko (cello)—has blended sounds across lines of culture and era, moving beyond the typical terrain for a string quartet. Through brave sonic explorations into the pressing issues of our time, Kronos has established a worldwide influence. This year, the multi-GRAMMY-winning, San Francisco-based quartet will mark its fiftieth anniversary with the KRONOS Five Decades tour, adding to its legacy of innovation by performing programs featuring new commissions, signature works from its vast repertoire, and pieces from Kronos’ Fifty for the Future project.
