Kronos Quartet w/ Alim Qasimov Ensemble – Live in Concert – Fri., Feb. 17, 2012

The collaboration between Kronos Quartet and the Alim Qasimov Ensemble produces powerful pieces drawn from the repertoire of Azerbaijani ashiqs—oral-tradition singer-songwriters whose song texts portray, often with wry humor and searing irony, the power of love and the pain of separation. The legendary singer Alim Qasimov is called “one of the most thrilling, unashamedly emotional performers on the planet” (Robin Denselow, the “Guardian”).
