Event Details

Charismatic and highly adventurous, Kronos Quartet return to Sydney Opera House to demolish traditional music barriers with the world premiere of Jon Rose's Music from 4 Fences.  Featured within the evening’s program of Australian premieres, this extraordinary finale, commissioned by Sydney Opera House, involves Kronos members standing to bow and strike amplified fences as they are moved around the stage.

A hypnotic sonic and visual experience; you’ll be seduced by the atmospheric music, throbs and drones celestially coaxed from wire and metal, whilst immersed within a range of images of the fences as they are projected around the stage in real-time.

Featured non-Australian music: Vrebalov, Kulenty et al.
