“A wonderfully ferocious and illuminating performance.” The Washington Post

Renowned for its passionate musicality, impressive technique and multicultural innovations, the Shanghai Quartet has become one of the world’s foremost chamber ensembles. Its elegant style melds the delicacy of Eastern music with the emotional breadth of Western repertoire, allowing it to traverse musical genres including traditional Chinese folk music, masterpieces of Western music and cutting-edge contemporary works.

Returning to our series and concluding our season with a towering program, they will perform masterpieces by Bartok and Beethoven.
