Kronos Quartet performs at Zellerbach Hall in Berkeley, California on March 2, 2024.


Songs and Symphoniques: The Music of Moondog, a collaboration between Kronos and the Brooklyn-based Ghost Train Orchestra, is now out on Cantaloupe Records. The album features new re-imaginings of the music of Louis Hardin, a.k.a. Moondog, the blind composer who lived on the streets of Manhattan and became a fixture on 6th Avenue, dressed in striking Viking attire while selling his records and reciting poetry. His beautiful and haunting madrigals, songs, and symphoniques inspired Philip Glass and Steve Reich, who called Moondog “the godfather of minimalism.”

Featuring a diverse cast of special guests, Songs and Symphoniques showcases the work of five arrangers from Ghost Train Orchestra revisiting Moondog’s vital and uplifting music for a new generation.
