The celebrated new-music ensemble Kronos Quartet launches its 40th Anniversary Season with a free-for-everyone concert on the New Haven Green, featuring special guest Wu Man.
The Grammy winning Quartet has eagerly explored new music in a diverse range of genres, spanning contemporary classical music, Mexican folk, experimental, pre-classical early music, film scores, jazz, and tango. The Kronos Quartet, which includes violinists David Harrington and John Sherba, and violist Hank Dutt, will welcome a new ensemble member at its performance in New Haven: cellist Sunny Jungin Yang.
The performance in New Haven will include works specially commissioned and created for the Quartet, as well as Chinese pipa player Wu Man, who was recently named Musical America’s 2012 musician of the year.
