Trio Da Kali and Kronos Quartet
Ladilikan

Kronos Quartet are leaders in modern classical and their drive to collaborate and experiment is probably the main reason why. After their works with the likes of Philip Glass, Steve Reich, and Clint Mansell it’s more about finding more artists to collaborate with. Bring in Trio Da Kali some of the finest traditional musicians from Mali and you’ve got a recipe for incredible rich diversity.

Philip Glass / Kronos Quartet
Dracula

In 1998, Philip Glass took pity on the 1931 Bela Lugosi-starring silent film Dracula, because it was never before given the gift of a score. With regular collaborators Kronos Quartet in tow, Glass composed a dramatic set of eerie string pieces, with touches of his melodic minimalism here and there. 180g double LP on Orange Mountain Music: this reissue is the first time this soundtrack has appeared on vinyl.

Kronos Quartet
Pieces of Africa

Pieces Of Africa finds the go-to indie-classical string quartet supreme, the Kronos Quartet, taking on commissions from eight African composers. With the string quartet being arguably one of the most archetypal formats of the Western classical tradition, it is wonderful to hear it pushed in new directions on these ingenious compositions. Double LP on Nonesuch.

Clint Mansell & Kronos Quartet
Requiem For A Dream

Clint Mansell seems like a nice guy with a great name and rather talented too. This is the first ever vinyl edition of his  haunting score to Darren Aronofsky's 2000 film Requiem For A Dream, performed by Kronos Quartet. Performed by Kronos Quartet, have those words ever led to bad music? I sincerely doubt it.
