Always at the forefront, seeking the new and pushing to its limits the boundaries of the traditional string quartet, it is no surprise the Kronos Quartet sought out Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq for another collaboration with Canadian composer Derek Charke. Tagaq’s guttural, highly intimate, primal sounds date back to her ancestors. She has turned these sounds into an art form that has enthralled audiences the world over. Pursuing a singular artistic vision for more than 40 years, the Kronos Quartet has become one of the most celebrated and influential groups of our time.
