Kronos Quartet Plays Terry Riley: Salome Dances for Peace

Released in 1989 – a ninety minute work spread over five separate elements.  Riley covers a wide variety of musical areas including, amongst others, jazz and blues, Indian classical music, North African Berber folk melodies, Native American ceremonial music, and South American shamanistic power melodies. Kronos Quartet deliver the music with their characteristic effortless aplomb. A fascinating album and perhaps one of the most important new classical pieces of the late 20th century.
