Bryce Dessner: Ahyem

Composer-guitarist Bryce Dessner is best known for his work with Brooklyn-based rock band, The Nationals, as well as being a founding member of Clogs and creator-curator of Cincinnati’s acclaimed MusicNOW festival. In Aheym, the renowned Kronos Quartet plays four pieces composed by Dessner, from the title cut, which has become a Quartet staple, to new works including a collaboration with the Brooklyn Youth Choir. Dessner weaves sonic tapestries that pull listeners along a subtle, satisfying and deepening journey. His compositions and Kronos’ performances show artists who bring out the best in each other.
