Kronos Quartet - Kevin Volans - Hunting: Gathering mp3 album

Kevin Volans: Hunting:Gathering (1991). The five compositions on this album, "a musical farewell to life," date from 1989, and were written after Piazzolla experienced a grave illness. They were premiered in New York at Alice Tully Hall on 25 November 1989, Piazzolla having flown to New York to play with the quartet for the premiere and the subsequent recordings, which were done in a. three-hour session at the Power Station in Manhattan

This led Kronos to commission a second-string quartet from Volans, especially written for the musicians. Like "White Man Sleeps," it is a stunning piece of music, recommended to every world music lover who wants to cross the bridge to contemporary, modern music. The work comes in three movements, each one with a different character.

Recorded at Skywalker Ranch, Nicasio, California. Commissioned for Kronos Quartet by Doris and Myron Beigler and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.
