Every part of Australia is, always was and always will be, Aboriginal land. As a community gathering-place, a festival of arts, cultural exchange and celebration and as a site for the sharing of ideas and stories, Ten Days on the Island pays respect to the palawa – original owners and cultural custodians - of all the lands and waters across lutruwita/Tasmania upon which our Festival takes place.

Kronos Quartet is suitable for all ages

For 50 years, Kronos Quartet has been a trailblazing force in music, committed to fearlessly exploring ways to reimagine the string quartet experience. An avant-garde icon of extraordinary musical breadth and creativity, Kronos has become one of the most celebrated and influential groups of the modern era.

Founded in 1973, Kronos Quartet’s radically adventurous sound has reshaped contemporary chamber music and has broken down barriers between genres. To celebrate Kronos’ five extraordinary decades the Grammy Award-winning group will perform a carefully curated selection of its ground-breaking repertoire, spanning brand new works and classic arrangements from composers around the world.

Kronos has commissioned more than 1,000 works, released 70 recordings and won more than 40 major awards, including three Grammys, the Polar Music and Avery Fisher Prizes. This legendary ensemble has collaborated with everyone from Steve Reich and Philip Glass to Laurie Anderson, Nine Inch Nails, David Bowie, Paul McCartney, Patti Smith and even Big Bird.

The 50th anniversary show marks the debut of Kronos Quartet’s recently appointed cellist Paul Wiancko, performing alongside founder and violinist David Harrington, and long-time members John Sherba (violin) and Hank Dutt (viola).

Kronos’ last visit to Hobart was in 1988. Don’t miss these masters of avant-classical in the performance of a lifetime in 2023.
