Celebrating 40 years: 5-CD Box Set & New Album

We’re pleased to announce two new releases on our longtime label, Nonesuch Records, in honor of Kronos’ 40th anniversary: 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, featuring music from 14 countries. Both will be available on April 8, 2014, and are available to pre-order in the Nonesuch Store; pre-orders of A Thousand Thoughts include an instant download of Sim Sholom, which you can hear here.

The Kronos Explorer Series five-CD box set comprises classic Kronos albums—Pieces of Africa, Night Prayers, Caravan, Nuevo, and Floodplain—with new liner notes that include an in-depth interview of Kronos founder David Harrington by renowned author Jonathan Cott.
Kronos Explorer Series & A Thousand Thoughts
A Thousand Thoughts is a look at the group’s geographically wide-ranging sources, 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. Nonesuch Store pre-orders include an instant download of one such track, Sim Sholom.
