Nonesuch Releases Kronos Quartet’s Music of Vladimir Martynov on January 10

We’re pleased to announce that Nonesuch Records releases Kronos Quartet’s Music of Vladimir Martynov on January 10, 2012. The album includes three works written or rescored for Kronos by the contemporary Russian composer Vladimir Martynov: The Beatitudes (1998, rescored for Kronos, 2006), Schubert–Quintet (Unfinished) (2009), and Der Abschied (2006). Kronos’ artistic director and founder David Harrington says Martynov’s music “straddles various points of musical history and time; the music seems to me to reflect and absorb humanity in such a beautiful way.” Music of Vladimir Martynov is available for pre-order now on Kronos’ website, including an option to purchase a copy signed by Kronos and former Kronos cellist of 20 years Joan Jeanrenaud, who joins the quartet for Schubert–Quintet (Unfinished). Unsigned copies are also available for preorder at Nonesuch Records.
