Kronos Quartet with Sam Green and Trio Da Kali

Trio Da Kali

A double dose of Kronos Quartet; looking to their past in the live cinema performance piece A Thousand Thoughts and to the present in their latest collaboration with the Malian ensemble Trio da Kali.In A Thousand Thoughts, Oscar-nominated filmmaker Sam Green questions how music can change the world – combining archival footage and filmed interviews with Philip Glass, Terry Riley and more, with live narration and music from the quartet. Looking back at Kronos Quartet’s enduring legacy, it’s both an important record of late 20th and early 21st century music and a meditation on music itself – the act of listening, the experience of feeling, and the power that music has to drive change.In the second half of the show, the quartet will be joined by Mali’s young Griot supergroup Trio da Kali, following their exquisite collaboration on album Ladillikan in 2017. It’s both a reminder of Kronos Quartet’s spirit of continuous exploration and also an electrifying upbeat to A Thousand Thoughts; another reason to be cheerful that Kronos Quartet have been making music for 40 years.
