First listen: Landfall and Final Answer

As you may know, Landfall Kronos’ collaborative album with Laurie Anderson, and Final Answer, the San Francisco Girls Chorus’ new album that features Kronos performing on three tracks, will both be released this Friday.

To hear Landfall in its entirety before it is released, please visit NPR Music for a “First Listen.”

To listen to excerpts of both Landfall and Final Answer, check out the two most recent episodes of WNYC’s New Sounds. #4079: Musical Meditations on Loss previews nine selections from Landfall, in addition to music by Valgeir Sigurðsson and others; and #4078: Works for Female Voices debuts “Music of Spheres,” our first studio recording of a work by San Francisco-based composer Sahba Aminikia, whom we’ve worked with for a number of years now and who was the artist-in-residence at KRONOS FESTIVAL 2017, our third annual hometown music festival (this year’s festival will be April 26-28 and was just announced last week!). Kronos Performing Arts Association commissioned “Music of Spheres” for and Kronos Quartet premiered it with the San Francisco Girls Chorus last year at the festival. The work also features the recorded voices of two dozen Afghan students from ANIM (Afghanistan National Institute of Music).
