As far as string quartets go, it doesn’t get more adventurous than the world famous Kronos Quartet from San Francisco. The quartet, artists in residence at this year’s Holland Festival, will perform a special concert at the Holland Festival Proms, playing their greatest hits as well as new work commissioned as part of their Fifty for the Future project. The familiar repertoire includes work by Bryce Dessner (The National), Syrian singer Omar Souleyman and Terry Riley, as well as two compositions by Clint Mansell and Vladimir Martynov which were used in the films Requiem for a Dream and La Grande Bellezza. The programme will also feature a guest performance by the amazing Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq. She wrote a new piece for the Kronos Quartet, which will have its European premiere.
