The Kronos Quartet turns 40 and the Pixies’ Surfer Rosa turns 25 this year. Emerging from that coincidence is the world premiere of the 12-piece Asphalt Orchestra marching band’s instrumental rendition of the Pixies’ grunge-launching debut album, with choreography by Jordana Che Toback, during a celebration of America’s most accessible experimental string quartet. With its big beats and memorable melodies, Surfer Rosa turns out to be a regular Tusk of its decade. Tonight’s grand finale of this week’s Kronos at 40 programs also includes newly commissioned works by Jherek Bischoff, Amon Tobin, the National’s Bryce Dessner, and Dan Deacon, whose Four Faces of Conflict will be illuminated with the help of fans and a mobile app. Don’t miss the pre-concert plaza sets by the Asphalts and Jacob Garchik’s nine-trombone group, the Heavens.
