Kronos Quartet Plays Terry Riley: Salome Dances for Peace

“A vast, eclectic, wonderful tapestry of musics… the Kronos members play it with enormous panache—hardly surprising, considering their long and close association with Riley`s music; their technical and musical mastery simply disarms criticism.”

Long Time Passing

“While [Pete] Seeger often found and adapted old songs for new situations, he also penned a fair number of new folk songs for use during the folk revival of the mid-20th century. Among them, “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” was a lament on cycles of violence that take many to war and then to the grave… To pay tribute to Seeger, the Kronos Quartet enlisted the voices of Sam Amidon, Aoife O’Donovan, and others to tell the tale in a sort of relay, with a new voice for every verse. The result feels like the song is posing a question that a community ponders, rather than being the rumination of a single singer. Indeed, in these challenging and often troubling times, many of us find ourselves wondering ‘when we will ever learn.'”
