5-CD Box Set & New Album: OUT NOW!

Our two latest albums are out now! Our longtime label Nonesuch Records celebrates the group’s 40th anniversary year with two releases: Kronos Explorer Series, a box set of five classic albums from five different parts of the world, and A Thousand Thoughts, a new album that looks at Kronos’s geographically wide-ranging sources. To celebrate, iTunes has many earlier releases in our catalog on sale for $7.99.

The Kronos Explorer Series five-CD box set comprises five classic albums from five different parts of the world — Pieces of Africa, Night Prayers, Caravan, Nuevo, and Floodplain — with new liner notes that include an in-depth interview of David Harrington by renowned author Jonathan Cott.

A Thousand Thoughts is a look at the group’s geographically wide-ranging sources, featuring music from 14 different countries, including China, India, Sweden, and Vietnam. The album includes the four cellists who have been in Kronos Quartet over the last 36 years. Ten of the album’s 15 pieces are previously unreleased, including Alter Yechiel Karniol’s Sim Sholom (listen).

Learn more and purchase the albums from iTunes or Nonesuch Records.
