Kronos Quartet consists of David Harrington, John Sherba, Hank Dutt, and Paul Wiancko. Throughout their 50-year career, they have reimagined the traditional concept of the string quartet. Their performance at the National Concert Hall will showcase pieces from their extensive repertoire, including Steve Reich’s Triple Quartet, along with works by Sigur Ros, Laurie Anderson, Sun Ra, Terry Riley, and Jlin.
Over the years, the Kronos Quartet have commissioned works from a range of globally recognised composers, including John Cage, Morton Feldman, and Philip Glass. The 'Five Decades' tour will introduce commissions from composers such as Osvaldo Golijov, Michael Gordon, Henryk Górecki, Sofia Gubaidulina, Jlin, Astor Piazzolla, Tanya Tagaq, and Wu Man.
