Kronos Quartet with Alim Qasimov Ensemble
GRAMMY-Winning Kronos Quartet with Alim Qasimov Ensemble
$15.00 - $19.00*
The multiple award-winning contemporary music group Kronos Quartet performs live at Schwartz Center for Performing arts with the Alim Qasimov Ensemble. Together they perform powerful pieces drawn from the repertoire of Azerbaijani ashiqs, traditional singer-songwriters who were born out of the Shamanistic beliefs of ancient Turkic peoples. The ashiqs perpetuated the oral traditions of their people and promoted the communal value systems of the culture, through songs that told tales of love and epic battles and wars. These wandering troubadours continue the tradition to this day. The legendary singer Alim Qasimov is one of these modern ashiqs and has been called "one of the most thrilling, unashamedly emotional performers on the planet" by The Guardian

For his one-man ode to an idol, actor Julian Sands (A Room With a View, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) combines the poems and political prose of Nobel Prize-winning British poet and playwright Sir Harold Pinter. Pinter earned acclaim for his plays The Caretaker and The Birthday Party, and was famously outspoken about international human rights abuses and U.S. foreign policy. Sands' homage will include his own personal anecdotes culled from working with Pinter shortly before the writer's death in 2008. Acclaimed actor-director John Malkovich -- who's directed a number of Pinter plays and acted alongside Sands -- helmed this internationally renowned production. Learn More
