A necessary homage to the legendary Kronos Quartet through the means of a necessarily incomplete broadcast with good intentions. The intentions were, namely, to provide an eclectic yet aurally engaging program following in consequence from two axioms:
1 That the Kronos Quartet is "basically" a classical ensemble, and
2 Everything the Kronos Quartet plays is very good
In a way, much of the music on this program could be viewed as a continuation of Ms. Rubashkin's 6/16 Cereal Music program, featuring unusual arrangements of well-known pieces.
This morning's program focused on classical music inspired by childhood, written for children audiences, and composed for learning musicians. It included classics like Debussy's "Children's Corner" and new pieces like "Ferdinand the Bull."
