A Dream Come True

We are still sailing so high from our Esterhazy concert at Haydn Hall last week, and want to thank everyone who attended – you were so incredibly attentive and enthusiastic. It was truly a cosmic experience that we will never forget.

We hope that Haydn’s ghost appreciated our tribute to his work: we performed eight new works composed for Kronos’ Fifty for the Future that we hope will continue what the Father of the String Quartet started by sustaining the string quartet as a living art form for centuries more to come.

After the show, we did a photoshoot with Pannonisches Jugend Orchestra, a youth orchestra conducted by Jochem Hochstenbach that features musicians from Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, and Germany. When asked what their favorite piece was, they shouted together without any hesitation: ‘All of them!’ That made our day/year!
