Two Fifty for the Future Composers on NPR’s Fresh AIr

Our recent collaborations with Laurie Anderson – “Landfall” on Nonesuch Records – and Trio Da Kali – “Ladilikan” on World Circuit Records – were featured on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross today. Thank you to critic Milo Miles. Listen to the review here.

Laurie Anderson and Trio Da Kali’s Fodé Lassana Diabaté are both composers for Kronos’ Fifty for the Future. Scores, parts, recordings and more for Anderson’s and Diabaté‘s string quartets are available on our website free of charge.

Fifty for the Future at UCLA

We’ve been having a wonderful time working with student quartets at UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music for the past two days during our CAP UCLA residency. They’ve surprised us more than once: collaborating with a tabla player to perform Amrit by Kala Ramnath, and reimagining Sunjata’s Time by Fodé Lassana Diabaté by adding thumb piano and percussion!

If you’re in the area, come by UCLA Royce Hall today at 7:15PM to see the 50/50 Quartet, a UCLA student/alumni ensemble, play these selections (and more) from Kronos’ Fifty for the Future on the Terrace for free! Afterwards, we’ll perform My Lai: Kronos Quartet, Rinde Eckert and Vân-Ánh Võ at 8PM.
