More Kronos + festivals: we’ll be spending a long weekend at Glasgow’s Concert Halls in May! Kronos in Glasgow runs from May 12 through 15, we’ll be joined by some very special guest collaborators, hand-picked by us, for a program of events taking place across the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, City Halls, and Old Fruitmarket, and a one-off show at Hamilton Mausoleum.

Australia’s Sydney Festival has announced the lineup for its 2011 gathering, and we’re excited to take part in it!
Kronos will be joined at the State Theatre by pipa virtuoso Wu Man for the Australian premiere of a program featuring Tan Dun’s Ghost Opera, and A Chinese Home, conceived by David Harrington, Wu Man, and director Chen Shi-Zheng. The latter piece, a staged work with video, was inspired by the deconstruction and rebuilding in the US of a late Qing dynasty dwelling and explores both the rural sensibilities and modern attitudes of China.
On January 14, Kronos returns to the State Theatre for two performances of Philip Glass’s score to the classic Bela Lugosi film Dracula. We’ll be joined by the composer at both the 7:30 PM and midnight performances of the score.
Wu Man also performs a solo concert on January 16 at 5 PM.
For more information, please visit the Sydney Festival’s website.

Our dear friend and longtime collaborator Henryk Mikołaj Górecki passed away this morning at the age of 76. The three string quartets Mr. Gorecki wrote for us have a very special place in our repertoire, and we will miss him immensely. David Harrington offers these remembrances.
