In memorium: Ben Johnston (1926-2019)July 23, 2019

American composer Ben Johnston died this Sunday at the age of 93. He was a longtime friend and collaborator of Kronos. Artistic director, founder and violinist David Harrington writes:

“Ben Johnston wrote his String Quartet No. 4 (‘Amazing Grace’) in 1973 for the Fine Arts Quartet from Chicago. When John Sherba joined Kronos in 1978, he brought with him memories of hearing the world premiere of that stunning work as a student at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Kronos began playing this fabulous set of ‘Amazing Grace’ variations in 1979, and soon we became friends with Ben Johnston.
