Kronos Quartet with special guest Mahsa Vahdat

Ticketed, in-person event

This concert features new works by Terry Riley and Cal Performances’ 2021–22 Artist-in-Residence, Angélique Kidjo. For the second half of this concert, Kronos is joined by Mahsa Vahdat, a prominent performer of Persian vocal music, who collaborated with the quartet on the evocative 2019 recording Placeless. The project features melodies Vahdat composed to classical poems by Hafez and Rumi, as well as contemporary texts by Iranian poets. “[Vahdat] is an alluring, descriptive singer… The sheer seductiveness of her voice and style proved compelling” (Los Angeles Times).
