Classical Pick of the Week: I Want "Nunavut"
the Kronos Quartet performing "Lux Aeterna"
The Kronos Quartet is a highly regarded avant-garde string quartet, recognized outside of classical music circles for their collaborations with artists including David Bowie, Allen Ginsberg, Dave Matthews, Nelly Furtado, and playing on soundtracks of the popular Aronofsky films The Fountain and Requiem For a Dream ("Lux Aeterna" is the popular composition used regularly outside of the film).
This weekend KCRW presents a concert of the Kronos Quartet collaborating with Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq (highly touted by Björk), and a world premiere of a composition by Derek Charke. They also explore some music from popular Icelandic band Sigur Rós.
