Kronos Quartet brings an eclectic program to Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall on Friday, May 3 (9 pm). A highlight is the world premiere of Missy Mazzoli's You Know Me From Here, a major statement from the 32-year-old composer. According to Mazzoli, the 20-minute work is "about loss, but in the most positive sense; it speaks of the loss of our old selves, the jumps into the unknown, the leaps of faith we all must make and the beautiful moments when we find solace in a person, in an idea, or in music itself. The music itself shifts constantly from earthy, gritty gestures to soaring, leaping melodies that rarely land where we expect." It is her second piece for Kronos, following Harp and Altar (2009), which The New York Times cited as "further evidence that [Mazzoli] is among the more consistently inventive and surprising composers now working in New York."
