Notes and Editorial Reviews

"A Thousand Thoughts" looks at the Kronos Quartet’s geographically wide-ranging sources, featuring music from 14 different countries. This album is one of two releases by Nonesuch, the other being the 5 CD set "The Kronos Explorer Series," a box set of five classic albums from five different parts of the world. Both albums are in celebration of the Kronos Quartet, long known as interpreters of music from around the world, in its 40th anniversary year.
