Kronos Quartet at MIM

Enjoy an evening of beautiful music by Kronos Quartet Jan. 14 and 15. Kronos Quartet is one of the world’s most renowned string quartets, selling more than 1.5 million records and with more than 3,000 performances. They are the only recipients of both the Polar Music Prize and the Avery Fisher Prize, two of the most prestigious awards given to musicians. The group’s other awards include a Grammy for Best Chamber Music Performance (2004) and as “Musicians of the Year” (2003) from Musical America.


The ensemble’s origin dates back to 1973 in Seattle, Washington, although it is now based in San Francisco, California. Having worked with masters ranging from Shostakovich and Webern to jazz legends Thelonious Monk and Ornette Coleman, Kronos performs work that is adventurous as it is inspiring. Their dedication and commitment to new music is matched by their in-depth collaborations with many of the world’s foremost composers.


Both evening performances begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are $47.50 to $67.50.
