Notes & Reviews:

In honor of groundbreaking American composer Terry Riley's 80th birthday, Nonesuch Records releases One Earth, One People, One Love: Kronos Plays Terry Riley-a five-disc box set of four albums of his work composed for, and performed by, his longtime friends and champions Kronos Quartet-on June 16, 2015. Riley and Kronos met more than 35 years ago, and since then, the quartet has commissioned 27 works from him, more than from any other composer in the group's history.
