The Argus Quartet, current fellowship quartet-in-residence at the Yale School of Music, will perform at Carnegie Hall’s Zankel Hall on April 15. The concert is part of the Kronos Quartet’s weeklong workshop for young professional string quartets to explore new works. These works are commissioned as part of Fifty for the Future: The Kronos Learning Repertoire, a major commissioning initiative devoted to the most contemporary approaches to the string quartet. The workshop culminates in the Zankel Hall performance, which also features selections from one of Kronos’ signature works, Terry Riley’s Salome Dances for Peace.
In addition to the Riley, the concert includes music by Fodé Lassana Diabaté, Garth Knox, and Wu Man, and the Friction and Ligeti Quartets will also perform.
