When’s the last time you heard a string quartet play music from Iraq?

Kronos Quartet, “Oh Mother, The Handsome Man Tortures Me,” live, London, 2008



I’ve always wanted the string quartet to be vital, and energetic, and alive, and cool, and not afraid to kick ass.—David Harrington (Kronos Quartet, violin [far left in this clip])
