Kronos Quartet's music for future generations

Kronos Quartet's 50 for the Future creates works to serve as free resources for young musicians.

For more than 40 years, the Kronos Quartet, a string quartet based in San Francisco, has been entertaining audiences worldwide.

Now they are commissioning fifty new pieces - 25 from women and 25 from men - to entertain and help the next generation of musicians learn from the best, by sharing the scores online for free.
