April: Kronos Quartet in France and Turkey

April was mostly a small tour with the Kronos Quartet. As ever the programmes were fantastic, I find out about so much interesting music from Kronos, Nicole Lizée for one but also Mary Kouyoumdjian whose Bombs of Beirut is utterly moving and thought provoking.

In Arras I found some lovely sounds – appropriate after working so recently with Arno Fabre and Mario de Vega.

Recorded on my phone…. Arras bells

Then there was the amazing tower of the Cathedral at LeHavre, the view from my hotel towards the venue, the Royal de Luxe workshops in Nantes, and then off to Ankara for a couple of days:

Working with the Kronos Quartet and crew is always a joy, and this tour was no exception!
