Kronos quartet

San Fransisco, USA

Rolf Schock Prize - Musical arts 1999

"for its achievement in promoting the creation of a new string quartet repertoire and communicating that repertoire, together with earlier works, to new audiences. During the twenty-five and more years of its existence, and without compromising on its fundamental principles of quality, the Kronosquartet has been an eminent and conscious transcender of boundaries in time and space and between musical traditions and social environments"
