Join Chamber Music Pittsburgh for the Kronos Quartet’s 50th anniversary tour, celebrating the ensemble’s contributions to the genre with a dynamic mix of new compositions, signature pieces, and commissioned works. San Francisco’s Kronos Quartet has “broken the boundaries of what string quartets do” (The New York Times). Since its founding, Kronos has been transforming the string quartet into a living art form and exploring how music can magnify the critical issues of our time. The Kronos Quartet features David Harrington on violin, John Sherba on violin, Hank Dutt on viola, and Paul Wiancko on cello. This concert is generously sponsored in part by Russell and Kathy Ayres. About MainStage Live: This series welcomes some of the most incredible artists performing today and pairs striking new compositions with powerful classics, demonstrating the inspiring diversity of chamber music performance.
