Kronos Quartet has launched 50 for the Future: The Kronos Learning Repertoire, a string quartet commissioning, performance, education, and legacy project of unprecedented scope and potential impact.

Drawing on more than 45 years of collaboration with prominent and emerging composers from around the world, Kronos is commissioning a library of fifty works designed to guide young amateur and early-career professional string quartets in developing and honing the skills required for the performance of 21st-century repertoire. Each of the fifty works will be an artistically complete composition that will be premiered by Kronos with the entire 50 for the Future body of work becoming a core component of its own repertoire over six performance seasons (2015/2016 through 2020/2021) and will now be presented by the String Quartet Biennale Amsterdam during the weekend of 6/7 May 2023.
