Bryce Dessner is the classically-trained guitarist who formed The National back in 1999 with brother Aaron. Since then he has balanced songwriting for one of the world's biggest contemporary rock bands with developing and flexing his classical guitar and compositional muscles, playing for the likes of Philip Glass and Terry Riley and, most recently, contributing to experimental classical group, the Kronos Quartet. Here Dessner discusses his education at music conservatories, and his unique and shared experiences in both a rock 'n roll band and as a classical musician.

The Kronos Quartet's new album is currently available to preview via NPR.
