The Kronos Quartet is a very special string quartet whose repentory, is indeed quite exceptional. The members of this quartet from San Francisco devote their efforts to the interpretation of works penned by great composers of our century. They have recorded albums dedicated to the compositions of Thelonious Monk and Bill Evans. Other contemporary musicians whose works they perform include Philip Glass, Miles Davis, John Cage, Teny Riley, ... and Jimi Hendrix. The Kronos Quartet brings its very own sensitiveness to the music of 20th Century masters, and add a new dimension to their brilliant Opuses.
