30TH ANNIVERSARY OF ALBUM RELEASE

BLACK ANGELS

“As a piece of music, George Crumb’s ‘Black Angels’ remains at the heart of Kronos. It seems as relevant today as it did in 1973,” says artistic director and violinist David Harrington, referring to year that he was inspired to form Kronos specifically to perform this piece. “As an album, Black Angels set our course for the next 30 years… and beyond.”

“The Kronos Quartet’s new recording employs ‘space sounds’ recorded by NASA over the years, and these percussive clicks, drones and ghostly screeches are artfully integrated into the string arrangements. Where some composers tend to get doomy and dystopian when faced with such subject matter, Riley is appealingly childlike and positive, and his strident minimalism is complemented by the utopian harmonies of the Volti choir.”
