Kronos Quartet

Fri 31 Jan 2020

With Brighton Festival Chorus
Kronos Quartet's Sun Rings recording has just won the Best Classical Production category at the 2020 Grammy Awards and few ensembles have pushed musical boundaries like Kronos Quartet, and in this extraordinary multimedia presentation it pushes them further than ever before: into outer space.

Sun Rings incorporates music sounds harvested from space as NASA’s Voyager probes hurtled past Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Composer Terry Riley wove the chatterings, howlings and chirrupings into a truly groundbreaking work in which his own hypnotic, multi-layered and brightly orchestrated soundworld takes on new dimensions and unearthly resonance.

In this multimedia production, Kronos Quartet is joined by the Brighton Festival Chorus and immersive visuals by English designer Willie Williams (Treatment Studio) to create a sensational sonic and visual experience that is quite literally out of this world.
