Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen (b. 1932) is one of the leading Scandinavian composers, an outstanding and insistent voice from the generation born in the inter-war years.

This CD is the culmination of the composer’s unique collaboration with the world-famous American Kronos Quartet, which has been commissioning specially tailored works from the Danish composer for over 20 years.

2008 is the Kronos Quartet’s 35th anniversary year.

“They're up onstage and they're playing the right instruments, but these people do not look like the members of a string quartet. Instead of wearing tuxedos or evening gowns, they're dressed in black spandex. They're the Kronos Quartet—classical music's own Fab Four.” Rolling Stone magazine
