Kronos Quartet

Consisting of 12 works from 11 countries, the local premiere of Kronos’s “Awakening: A Musical Meditation on the Anniversary of 9/11” suggests an artistic attempt to reestablish the international echoes of what seems to have evolved into a patriotic wallow. The program combines contemporary works by John Oswald (“Spectre”), Michael Gordon (“The Sad Park”), Osvaldo Golijov (“Darkness 9/11”), Einsterzende Neubauten, and Terry Riley with traditional sounds of consolation and reflection.

Wed., Sept. 21, 7:30 p.m.; Thu., Sept. 22, 7:30 p.m.; Fri., Sept. 23, 7:30 p.m.; Sat., Sept. 24, 7:30 p.m., 2011
