KRONOS QUARTET Pieces of Africa Limited Vinyl 2LP Set

Overview:
This “potent new brew of folk influences, Minimalism, and European forms by eight black, brown, and white African composers,” as Time described it, became a cross-cultural and commercial landmark: the first album to top both the Classical and World Music Billboard charts. This record now comes to vinyl for the first time on 2x140gm LPs, pressed at Record Industry. For more than 40 years, San Francisco's Kronos Quartet-David Harrington (violin), John Sherba (violin), Hank Dutt (viola), and Sunny Yang (cello)-has combined a spirit of fearless exploration with a commitment, Kronos has become one of the world's most celebrated and influential ensembles, performing thousands of concerts, releasing more than 50 recordings, collaborating with many of the world's most eclectic composers and performers, and commissioning over 850 works and arrangements for string quartet.
