The Shanghai Quartet
Ended February 06

“A wonderfully ferocious and illuminating performance.” Washington Post

The Shanghai Quartet elegantly melds East and West, from traditional Chinese folk music to masterpieces of Western music to cutting-edge contemporary works. The group’s more than 30 recordings range from quartets by Schumann, Dvořák and Beethoven to such contemporary Asian works as the chart-topping Chinasong, a folksong-infused musical memoir of China’s Cultural Revolution. This performance—the quartet’s first Hop show since it formed 35 years ago—features Academy Award-winning Chinese composer Tan Dun’s Hop-supported reworking of his landmark 1982 quartet.
