Celebrating its 40th Anniversary Season, San Francisco’s world-renowned, Grammy-winning Kronos Quartet returns to Bing Concert Hall with a Stanford-only program brimming with the quartet’s signature breadth and innovation.

The evening includes performances of new Kronos-commissioned works by two illustrious composers: Philip Glass, a towering figure in American music and a longtime Kronos collaborator; and, in the Bay Area premiere of his third string quartet, the Ukraine’s Valentin Silvestrov, who unites “an array of influences into a graceful, communicative style of his own.” (New York Times).

    A dynamic, varied program from the Kronos Quartet last night – from Wagner to Philip Glass, casually ending with a little-known blues song from the 30s. They handled it all effortlessly, one moment tackling the rhythmically challenging Dessner’s “Aheym”, and later showing their more tender side with the traditional Swedish folk song “Tusen Tankar (A Thousand Thoughts)”.
