Kronos Quartet - presented by Gualala Arts
"The intrepid Kronos Quartet has exemplified musical wanderlust and collaboration at its most extreme, absorbing hundreds of composers and traveling the world nonstop, picking up and devouring music from every nook and cranny."
- Los Angeles Times
Kronos Quartet performs at Gualala Arts Center on Earth Day - Sunday, April 22, 2012 at 7:00 p.m.
For more than 30 years, the Kronos Quartet - David Harrington, John Sherba (violins), Hank Dutt (viola), and Jeffrey Zeigler (cello) - has pursued a singular artistic vision, combining a spirit of fearless exploration with a commitment to expanding the range and context of the string quartet.
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 45 recordings of extraordinary breadth and creativity, collaborating with many of the world's most eclectic composers and performers, and commissioning more than 750 works and arrangements for string quartet.
In 2011, Kronos became the only recipients of both the Polar Music Prize and the Avery Fisher Prize, two of the most prestigious awards given to musicians. The group's numerous awards also include a Grammy for Best Chamber Music Performance (2004) and "Musicians of the Year" (2003) from Musical America.
