For 45 years, Kronos Quartet/Kronos Performing Arts Association has championed new music. We have now commissioned and premiered an unprecedented 1,000 new works and arrangements written by hundreds of artists from around the world.

Durante 45 años, el Kronos Quartet ha redefinido el concepto de conjunto de cámara colaborando con autores de los más amplios estilos y procedencias geográficas, buscando la excelencia y la diversidad cultural, estrenando más de 1000 obras y haciendo arreglos para cuarteto de las más dispares músicas de nuestro tiempo.

I’ve always wanted the string quartet to be vital, and energetic, and alive, and cool, and not afraid to kick ass and be absolutely beautiful and ugly if it has to be. But it has to be expressive of life. To tell the story with grace and humor and depth. And to tell the whole story, if possible.” – David Harrington

“Siempre quise que el cuarteto de cuerdas fuera vital, enérgico, vivo y genial, y no temiera ser la hostia y absolutamente bello o feo si tiene que serlo. Pero tiene que ser una expresión de vida. Para contar un relato con gracia y humor y profundidad. Y para contar toda la historia de nuestra música, si fuera posible” – David Harrington
