Kronos joins a stellar lineup of musical luminaries who are coming together for one night only to pay tribute to Bob Hurwitz. For the past three decades, he has served as the visionary architect of Nonesuch Records, affectionately referred to as “the label without labels.” At the center of this extraordinary celebration is a program of world premiere piano works dedicated to Bob by Nonesuch artists—John Adams, Laurie Anderson, Timo Andres, Louis Andriessen, Donnacha Dennehy, Philip Glass, Adam Guettel, Brad Mehldau, Pat Metheny, Randy Newman, and Steve Reich—performed by the composers themselves and others. The evening also includes performances by k.d. lang, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Thile, Dawn Upshaw, Stephin Merritt, Devendra Banhart, and others who have worked closely with Bob during his tenure.
