Ying Quartet
with Zuill Bailey, cello

Sunday, April 28, 2019 at 4pm


The Ying Quartet occupies a position of unique prominence in the classical music world, combining brilliantly communicative performances with a fearlessly imaginative view of chamber music in today’s world. Now in its third decade, the Quartet has established itself as an ensemble of the highest musical qualifications. Returning to our series, they will be joined by cellist Zuill Bailey for a performance of the magnificent Schumann Cello Concerto transcribed for a string quintet.

Since his last appearance at HCMC, Mr. Bailey won a best solo performance Grammy Award in 2017 for his Live Recording of “Tales of Hemingway,” by composer Michael Daugherty.
