Your Classical MPR, Walker Art Center, and Shubert Club Mix Present:  Kronos Quartet – 50 for the Future: New Global Voices

Sunday, March 20, 2022 7:30PM

“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 Walker 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 Saturday night, New Global Voices (Program A) features compelling scores by international composers new to Minnesota audiences, such as Aruna Narayan (India/Canada), Peni Candra Rini (Indonesia), and Soo Yeon Lyuh (South Korea).

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.
