Kronos Quartet - Pieces Of Africa mp3 album

Pieces of Africa is a studio album by the Kronos Quartet, containing works commissioned by the quartet, written by seven African composers. David Harrington - violin, akete.

The album consists of commissions from African composers working at varying distances from European conventions. But whereas Byrne and Simon arguably used the music of Brazil or South Africa as backgrounds over which to display their own egos, the Kronos Quartet's members managed to sublimate themselves in service to the compositions, never giving the listener any sense of condescension.
