ABOUT THE SHOW

After an astounding 50 years, multi-GRAMMY Award winner Kronos Quartet shows no signs of slowing down. The group performs original and evocative chamber music compositions, led by violinist and founder David Harrington. Over the years, Kronos has performed more than 1,000 pieces, played Carnegie Hall and collaborated with the likes of Philip Glass, Patti Smith and Steve Reich.

In their return to Purdue University, the San Francisco ensemble continues to challenge and reimagine what a string quartet can be on its Five Decades tour. Kronos will perform new commissions, signature works from its vast repertoire, and pieces from its free-access commissioning project, Kronos Fifty for the Future. A recent concert review saw The New York Times rave about Kronos’ “malleable virtuosity” and “wellspring” of memorable music.

Breaking Boundaries: 50 Years of Musical Innovation with Kronos Quartet

As part of our exploration into the world of Kronos Quartet, we had the privilege of conducting a pre-show interview with David Harrington, the violinist and founder of Kronos Quartet. In this illuminating conversation titled “Deep Roots: A Conversation with David Harrington,” Harrington shares insights into the quartet’s journey, their pioneering collaborations, and the creative process that drives their musical innovation. The interview was conducted by Judd Danby, a composer, jazz pianist, and music educator, adding depth and context to Kronos Quartet’s remarkable story.
