Kronos Quartet, "At War With Ourselves – 400 Years of You"
A Hancher commission
A rhapsodic modern-day song cycle spun from the skin of history for string quartet, chorus, and narrator, At War With Ourselves – 400 Years of You features a text by National Book Award-winning poet Nikky Finney inspired by her 2013 poem “The Battle of and for the Black Face Boy.” The music was composed by Michael Abels, composer for the Jordan Peele films Us and Get Out. This powerful new work explores race relations, social justice, and civil rights in 21st century America.
