This program is a “grand finale” in two senses, as we close out the 2024 Festival and bid farewell to retiring Kronos members Hank Dutt and John Sherba, both veterans of the quartet for 45+ years. And what better way to reflect upon the careers of John and Hank—and the entire globe- and half-century-spanning history of Kronos—than with the “live documentary” A Thousand Thoughts, a signature work in the Kronos repertoire? With live narration by filmmaker Sam Green and live performances by Kronos married to concert, interview, and behind-the-scenes film footage from throughout Kronos’ history, A Thousand Thoughts considers topics as far-reaching as its title suggests: moments both fleeting and recorded, sound and vision, presence and absence, and more.
