Kronos Quartet at Zankel (Musical America)

“From the Sublime to the Ridiculous”

My review of Kronos Quartet’s concert at Zankel Hall ran this past Friday on Musical America. The program featured a “one night only” reunion with former Kronos cellist Joan Jeanrenaud, performing music by Vladimir Martynov,¬†which was marvelous, and “Secret Word,” a piece dedicated to Pee Wee Herman, which was not so marvelous…

If you missed the concert (or even if you didn’t!), I strongly suggest checking out Kronos’s latest Nonesuch CD, a Martynov portrait.
