Kronos Quartet celebrates its 40th anniversary and launches a fifth decade of innovation and exploration with an impressive array of projects and special events during its 2013-14 season. Since Kronos’ debut concert at North Seattle Community College in November, 1973, it has become one of the most influential groups in any musical genre. They changed the way chamber music is presented by incorporating sound and lighting design, and theatrical elements. On July 14 they will perform free mega-concert at Stern Grove Festival in San Francisco.

Highlights of Kronos’ program include the world premiere of Notoation, a festival-commissioned work by electronic musician Amon Tobin; Death Is the Road to Awe by Clint Mansell, from his soundtrack to Darren Aronofsky’s film The Fountain; plus works by Café Tacvba, Ramallah Underground, and others.
