Philip Glass String Quartet No 6
Clint Mansell Music from The Fountain and Requiem for a Dream
Celebrating its 40th anniversary, the Kronos Quartet has commissioned and performed more than 800 new works, as well as collaborated with a rich collection of global musicians.
To complement its film project Beyond Zero: 1914–1918, it gives a special recital focusing on its collaborations with two artists whose work spans both classical and popular culture.
Philip Glass has collaborated with the Kronos players since the 1970s. His String Quartet No 6, written for and premiered by Kronos last year, is a hugely powerful work, dark and brooding in places.
Clint Mansell is the former lead singer of alternative rock band Pop Will Eat Itself, and as a composer has scored several films by the acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky. Kronos performs Mansell's music from Aronofsky's The Fountain and the cult classic Requiem for a Dream.
The Kronos Quartet doesn't just give a performance, it puts on a show
