Limited double 140gm vinyl LP pressing. Pieces Of Africa contains music written for the quartet by different African composers. The album reached #1 in Billboard's Top World Albums, and spent 29 weeks on the chart. This "potent new brew of folk influences, Minimalism, and European forms by eight black, brown, and white African composers," as Time described it, became a cross-cultural and commercial landmark: the first album to top both the Classical and World Music Billboard charts. The Kronos Quartet is an American string quartet based in San Francisco. They have been in existence with a rotating membership of musicians for over forty years. The quartet specializes in contemporary and new music, with more than 750 works having been written for them.
