“Kronos Quartet’s concert Friday evening at Sherwood Auditorium was an uplifting antidote to Donald Trump’s inaugural address. Trump proposed, ‘America first.’ Kronos countered with ‘One Earth, One People, One Love.’ Everything on the program was commissioned by Kronos, and their choice of composers celebrated inclusivity… It was a typical Kronos Quartet program, yet it assumed special significance.” – The San Diego Union-Tribune
“In the last quarter of the 20th century, [Kronos Quartet] revolutionized everything in string quartet country and beyond… The quartet remains as geographically, politically and spiritually feisty as ever. Forget about genre; Kronos made that an irrelevant term ages ago. The place to begin is probably politics. The string quartet serves better than just about anything I can think of as a salvation from all that is going on right now from which you may desperately crave respite… Kronos was founded in the early 1970s specifically to play George Crumb’s ‘Black Angels,’ a string quartet in protest of the Vietnam War. Kronos has never stopped taking a stand.” – Los Angeles TimesRead More
