Kontras Quartet with the Kruger Brothers
Sunday, October 12, 2014
A performance of Lucid Dreamer, the new work for string quartet, banjo, guitar and bass guitar that the Kontras Quartet commissioned from Jens Kruger of the Kruger Brothers. The piece was commissioned with the aid of a 2013 CMA grant made possible with generous funding provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Chamber Music America Endowment Fund.
"The music of the Kontras Quartet and the Kruger Brothers is a fascinating hybrid with wide appeal. Drawing on a rich cultural palette, their music celebrates the best of crossing over and fusing styles and expressions— always exciting, engaging, intelligent and delightful."
