Performing at Hamilton Mausoleum as part of the Kronos in Glasgow weekend, The Kronos Quartet played traditional number Tusen Tankar (A Thousand Thoughts) while in rehearsals at the venue reputed to have the longest natural reverb in the world.
In our interview with group found and leader David Harrington, he said beforehand of the unique location for their show: “What I heard was that the mausoleum has the longest natural reverb known in the world. So when we were visiting Glasgow last summer I had to come here and just check it out.
“The idea of playing music in the building that has the longest reverb is just too tantalising for a musician like me, so I can’t wait to try it out.”
The internationally renowned progressive classical group are in Scotland for their greatly anticipated Kronos in Glasgow series of shows which begins later today, and features four Scottish premieres including new work by Steve Reich.
