“ A lot of companies have used our music,” says Kronos violinist and leader David Harrington. “We really value that. Working with Alonzo King has felt like something that should and would happen. It’s going to be very vibrant and musical. We will be on stage playing, behind the dancers.”. For “Common Ground,” King has gleaned five pieces from the Kronos Performing Arts Association’s “Fifty for the Future: The Kronos Learning Repertoire.” An ongoing commissioning project and educational initiative launched three years ago, “Fifty for the Future” was conceived to provide aspiring amateur and early-career professional string quartets with material to hone the skills required to play contemporary music. Digital versions of the scores, recordings and other materials are all freely available on the Kronos website (Cal Performances presents Kronos playing new “Fifty for the Future” works at Zellerbach Hall on Jan. 25).
