For more than 35 years, Kronos Quartet has, time and again, redefined “string quartet,” assembling in the process “a body of work unparalleled in its range and scope of expression” (NPR). Their repertoire runs the gamut from Bartók to Charles Mingus to Jimi Hendrix, and their collaborators have been as diverse as Philip Glass, Asha Bhosle, and Nine Inch Nails. They share the Bandshell stage this evening with the frenzied and slightly diabolical Luminescent Orchestrii, a Gypsy punk string ensemble that “plays renditions of Appalachian and Gypsy tunes that run from lively and infectious to deeply melancholy” (Time Out NY).(Source)
