The Shanghai Quartet
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.
