If versatility is a strong measure of talent, the Kronos Quartet might just be the finest string quartet in America. For each of these four nights at Carnegie's Zankel Hall, the veteran ensemble showcases a unique theme: "Kronos Celebrates Terry Riley," a tribute to the influential minimalist composer; "Playing with Toys and Technology," featuring a cacophony of toy instruments and the playful, Bjork-approved Matmos (who've hopefully left their beloved cow queef samples at home); "Tundra Songs," in honor of traditional Scandinavian and Inuit music; and "Music Without Borders," featuring the Afghan rubâb master Homayoun Sakhi.
