Kronos Quartet

Two legendary forces in new music come together on stage in a major new commission and their first-ever collaboration.

Landfall: Scenes From My New Novel is a collection of works composed on hyper violin and adapted to the string quartet. Like a series of short stories, the pieces are linked by passages inspired by weather - roaring, all enveloping and atmospheric.

For this piece Laurie Anderson has designed software that brings the harmonics and overtones up off the noises floor creating an instrument that breathes in a completely new way. Kronos Quartet has adapted and built on this musical language so that electronics and traditional strings sing together.

'Quiet, poignant and very human' Washington Post

The start time of this concert has changed to 8pm. The performance will last approximately 70 minutes without interval.
