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.”

“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.”

Kronos is equally prolific and wide-ranging on recordings, topping Billboard’s Classical & World Music lists and winning Grammy Awards.
