For 50 years, San Francisco’s Grammy-winning Kronos Quartet has reimagined and redefined the string quartet experience. This year’s annual festival highlights works from the landmark Kronos Fifty for the Future commissioning and legacy project.

The Kronos life journey [has become] a relentless endeavor to open up the world’s music for everyone. If the conventional assemblage of two violins, viola and cello can be expanded, listeners will develop a richer musical perspective.
