We continue our Summer School blog series with tips from the Kronos Quartet about collaboration and its impact on one's career. In this Professional Training Workshop, the Kronos Quartet discuss their early career and provide recommendations for building a professional musical life—from exhibiting a sense of resilience and confidence when collaborating to being willing to wholly dedicate yourself to your music.
As the Summer School series continues, we'll share more of this Professional Training Workshop, in which Kronos Quartet leads three emerging quartets in a weeklong exploration of the string quartet repertoire that Kronos has built over 35 years of commissioning new music. Virtuoso pipa player Wu Man joins as guest faculty, working with the quartets and two young pipa artists in some of Kronos's collaborative repertoire.
