Kronos Quartet has succeeded
in introducing pieces of pop music to the acceptance of audiences
dedicated to classical music. This achievement was possible only
on the highest quality level. The list of people and groups they
have performed with over the years is equally varied: Tom Waits,
David Bowie, the Modern Jazz Quartet, Astor Piazolla, Joan Armtrading,
Björk, Pat Metheny and the Romanian Gypsy band Taraf de Haidouks.
Founder David Harrington has been quoted as saying that he always
wanted the Kronos Quartet to "be vital, energetic, alive…
and expressive of life. And to tell the whole story, if possible."
Unforgettable musical experiences in special
a special formation as the Kronos Quartet, who are permanently
and delicately crossing the borders of music genres, to the stage
of the Vienna State Opera is an excellent example for the work
of Fritz Thom in creating unforgettable musical experiences in
special places. While the secret service were busy backstage in
securing the First Lady, Hilary Rodham Clinton definitely enjoyed
the concert and the encounter with the musicians.
