Kronos Quartet 

When: Sun., Feb. 1, 7 p.m. 2009
Price: $48

It may have passed the thirty-year mark, but the Kronos Quartet shows no signs of abandoning its mission to present cutting-edge works of vision. This concert, like every concert it presents, promises to be special. The program of all-women composers starts with the fourth commission from the Kronos: Under 30 Project, Moscow-born Israeli composer AviyaKopelman'sWidows and Lovers. Finland's KaijaSaariaho's "Nymphéa," which includes the use of electronics and computers, offers yet another window on this fascinating composer's sonic universe. Also on the program are the West Coast premiere of the third reworking of Hanna Kulenty's String Quartet No. 4 (A Cradle Song), and Serbian-born, New York resident Aleksandra Vrebalov's "...hold me, neighbor, in this storm...." At Hertz Hall (near Bancroft Way and Telegraph Ave., UC Berkeley) on Sunday, Feb. 1. 7 p.m., $48. CalPerformances.org or 510-642-9988.
