Shanghai Quartet

The Shanghai Quartet melds the delicacy of Eastern music with the emotional breadth of Western repertoire, allowing it to traverse musical genres from masterpieces of Western music to cutting-edge contemporary works.

Their program at the Center will include Schubert’s Quartettsatz, Bartok’s Quartet #4, Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 15 in A Minor, Op. 132 and selections from ChinaSong, a suite of Chinese folk songs arranged for string quartet by the Shanghai Quartet’s violinist Yi-Wen Jiang.

Formed at the Shanghai Conservatory in 1983, the Quartet has a long history of championing new music and has worked with distinguished classical artists including the Tokyo, Juilliard and Guarneri quartets; Yo-Yo Ma; Lynn Harrell; and Peter Serkin.

Event begins at 8:00PM
