You can neatly divide the modern history of string quartets into two periods -- B.K. and A.K. -- before Kronos and after Kronos. That's how influential the Kronos Quartet has been and continues to be. Since its founding more than 40 years ago, the Quartet has redefined what's possible for string quartets, expanding the genre's possibilities with each of its 50-plus studio albums, while commissioning hundreds of new works embracing jazz, tango, experimental and world music. A jewel of the San Francisco arts scene, the Grammy-winning group has sold an astonishing 2.5 million recordings. Now experience this trailblazing foursome live as they take the stage at The Bushnell in Hartford for this concert featuring works by Philip Glass, Jlin, Terry Riley and Laurie Anderson.
