Carnegie Hall Kronos Quartet Workshop: Performance of Terry Riley’s “Salome Dances for Peace”

Participating string quartets, Ligeti, Argus, Friction Quartets and Kronos Quartet, perform movements of Terry Riley’s “Salome Dances for Peace” in Zankel Hall as part of the culminating performance of the Kronos Quartet Workshop presented by the Weill Music Institute of Carnegie Hall.

Visit http://bit.ly/2axvuGZ for more workshop videos.

Kronos Quartet led a weeklong workshop open to student and young professional string quartets to explore new works commissioned as part of Fifty for the Future: The Kronos Learning Repertoire. Fifty for the Future is a major commissioning initiative of Kronos Quartet, Carnegie Hall, and many other diverse partners and is devoted to the most contemporary approaches to the string quartet. The project is designed to present music as a living art form and to create a new trove of resources for the training of students and emerging professionals.
