“The most far-ranging ensemble geographically, nationally and stylistically the world has known.”

Los Angeles Times

For more than 45 years, San Francisco’s Kronos Quartet has pursued a singular artistic vision, combining a spirit of fearless exploration with a commitment to continually reimagine the string quartet experience. Kronos now returns to the Twin Cities after an 11-year hiatus with two distinct programs drawn from the diverse and dazzling array of Kronos’s Fifty for the Future project, an ambitious five-year commissioning and educational initiative comprised of 50 new works.

On Sunday, Old Friends (Program B) spotlights a diverse array of composers known here through their past Walker and other Twin Cities performances, including Terry Riley, Tanya Tagaq, and Missy Mazzoli.

Sunday Program: Old Friends

(Representative Works)

  • Terry Riley / This Assortment of Atoms – One Time Only!
  • Tanya Tagaq / Sivunittinni
  • Missy Mazzoli / Enthusiasm Strategies
