Kronos Quartet and Matmos.
Interview with David Harrington, founding member of The Kronos Quartet. In anticipation of the forthcoming shows at Glasgow Concert Halls.
"Over the last 30 years, the Kronos Quartet has constantly challenged the boundaries and conventions of classical music. The quartet line-up Haydn and Mozart knew is constantly put to the service of new work, drawing on the passions and encyclopaedic knowledge of Artistic Director, David Harrington. From collaborations in their American homeland with composers such as Adams, Reich, Crumb and Glass, they have ventured far to work with musicians of many traditions and nations. In May 2011, Glasgow’s Concert Halls is delighted to welcome them for a long weekend of music featuring new work by Steve Reich, one or two of those international collaborations, one of their famous family concerts and more."
