NPR’s Brooke Gladstone to join David Harrington Earlier, we announced that the 2014 entry in the Lloyd and Constance Old Lectures on 21st-Century Music will be a conversation with Kronos Quartet founder David Harrington. “Who will be conversing with Mr. Harringon?” you may have wondered. In answer to that question, we are pleased to announce that Brooke Gladstone, editor and host of NPR’s On the Media, will be joining Mr. Harrington. Ms. Gladstone is an expert media analyst who has received several major awards for journalism. In addition to her decades of work with NPR, she is the author of The Influencing Machine: Brooke Gladstone on the Media (2011). She has interviewed the Kronos Quartet on numerous occasions, and she wrote the liner notes for their 1994 release Night Prayers, as well as for the their 40th anniversary box set, the Kronos Explorer Series.
