Kronos Premieres

December 16, 2011

The Kronos Quartet has been a long-time champion of the music of Michael Gordon, having commissioned Sad Park in 2006 and Potassium in 2000. This fall, they premiere two brand new pieces by Gordon: Clouded Yellow, with a world premiere at Dartmouth on October 2nd and at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City on October 9th, and another world premiere, Exalted, for string quartet and chorus, for which they will join forces with the Young People’s Chorus of New York City at Le Poisson Rouge

Listen above to Francisco Nuñez and 3 of his choristers from the Young People’s Chorus of NYC talk about their work on Gordon’s Exalted.
