Cal Performances An Evening with Kronos Quartet; A Thousand Thoughts

Sound, image, history, storytelling, and live performance merge in Kronos Quartet’s collaboration with documentary filmmakers Sam Green (UC Berkeley alumnus) and Joe Bini. Onscreen, the quartet’s 45-year history at the vanguard of contemporary music unfolds through archival footage and interviews with Philip Glass, Terry Riley, Tanya Tagaq, and Steve Reich. Onstage, Kronos revisits works from its expansive catalog, performing music by George Crumb, Laurie Anderson, John Zorn, Aleksandra Vrebalov, and many others—while Green narrates in real time. The performance includes a solo piano set by minimalism pioneer Terry Riley (Kronos’ great friend and collaborator), and a panel conversation with the artists, moderated by Berkeley alumna Rebecca Solnit.
