KRONOS Five Decades Tour

Presented by Perth Festival and Albany Entertainment Centre

A stunning world premiere collaboration between the world’s most celebrated quartet and Noongar composer Maatakitj.

For 50 years, Kronos Quartet – ‘the most far-ranging ensemble geographically, nationally, and stylistically the world has known’ (Los Angeles Times) – has pursued a singular artistic vision, combining a spirit of fearless exploration with a commitment to continually reimagine the string quartet experience. Now they return to Perth Festival for a stunning world premiere collaboration with Noongar composer and language revivalist Maatakitj (Dr. Clint Bracknell). Under a sea of stars at Albany Entertainment Centre, Kronos also shares signature works from its vast repertoire including pieces from landmark legacy project 50 For the Future, a free-access library of wondrous string quartet music from around the world.

Perth Festival’s Touring WA program is supported by Minderoo Foundation

Kronos is presented by arrangement with Arts Project Australia
