In addition to pieces by three American mavericks written in the 1960s, the ever-adventurous Kronos Quartet performs a program that includes world premieres of two works commissioned by Carnegie Hall. Zachary J. Watkins’s piece is inspired by the moment just before Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech, while Stacy Garrop’s work is rooted in the words and spirit of oral historian and activist Studs Terkel.

Part of Late Nights at Zankel Hall.
