Fifty for the Future

Holland Festival

Kronos Quartet

The Kronos Quartet have been at very top for more than forty years. At the Holland Festival, they will be artists in residence for a week with their Fifty for the Future project. As part of their residency the quartet will give a concert at the Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ, which will include works by Donnacha Dennehy and Laurie Anderson. At this concert, they will also join forces with the Dutch Ragazze Quartet to perform the world premiere of a new work by Yannis Kyriakides. In addition, they will play a few pieces from their Fifty for the Future repertoire, which comprises fifty commissions awarded by the Kronos Quartet to a range of composers over a period of five years. This concert is testament that Kronos are still at the leading edge with their keen sense of adventure and excellent performances.
