Fifty years since it was founded, the ground-breaking Kronos Quartet performs for the first time in Kyoto!

The truly unique Kronos Quartet has continued to hold over seventy concerts a year across the world ever since it was founded in 1973. Its accomplishments include thousands of concerts, over sixty recordings, collaborations with a wide range of other artists, and over a thousand commissions for quartet compositions and arrangements. The unparalleled string quartet has earned the respect not only of classical music performers but also artists from many other genres. Marking fifty years since it was founded and nineteen years since its last Japanese tour, this is the quartet’s first ever concert in Kyoto.
