PROGRAM SUBJECT TO CHANGE
All works on tonight’s program were commissioned as part of the Kronos Performing Arts Association’s Fifty for the Future: The Kronos Learning Repertoire, which is made possible by a group of adventurous partners, including Cal Performances, Carnegie Hall and many others.


From Cal Performances website: “Cal Performances showcases Kronos Quartet’s ambitious and much-lauded Fifty for the Future new-music commissioning and open-access education initiative. The concert features world premieres by composer Misato Mochizuki, whose works are frequently inspired by science and philosophy, and Colombian musician Mario Galeano Toro, who has focused over the past 15 years on researching Colombian tropical music and its diaspora throughout South America. Guest artist Soo Yeon Lyuh, a virtuoso on the haegeum (a traditional Korean string instrument), will perform her Yessori with the quartet. And emphasizing what the Washington Post described as Fifty for the Future’s “imaginative generosity in support of creativity,” student ensembles from Berkeley High School, the Oakland School for the Arts and the Crowden School will also perform with the ensemble. “Kronos remains as geographically, politically and spiritually feisty as ever” (Los Angeles Times).”
