Kronos Quartet is a string quartet founded by violinist David Harrington in 1973 in Seattle, WA. Other current members include John Sherba, Jeffrey Zeigler, and Hank Dutt. Kronos has become one of the most celebrated and influential groups of our time, performing thousands of concerts worldwide, releasing more than 45 recordings of extraordinary breadth and creativity, collaborating with many of the world's most eclectic composers and performers, and commissioning more than 750 works and arrangements for string quartet. In 2011, Kronos became the only recipients of both the Polar Music Prize and the Avery Fisher Prize, two of the most prestigious awards given to musicians.
