One of the greatest forces in the string quartet world for the past 40 years, the Kronos Quartet unites with Calgary’s own Lincoln Park Quartet, an elite ensemble cultivated at the Mount Royal Conservatory. This cross-generational collaboration, featuring new works by composers handpicked for the Kronos Quartet’s Fifty for the Future: The Kronos Learning Repertoire, is on the breaking edge of what classical chamber music means today.
