MARY KOUYOUMDJIAN
Silent Cranes (Bay Area Premiere)

Kronos Quartet brings its ambitious and much-lauded Fifty for the Future commissioning initiative to Berkeley—where Cal Performances is among the project's lead partners—with an expansive program of new and recent works that draw inspiration from diverse sources—from the cosmos, to man's perilous relationship with water, to South African dance music. Mary Kouyoumdjian's Silent Cranes, a memorial to the Armenian genocide built on Armenian folk songs, receives its Bay Area premiere.
