What You'll Get


Renowned for its passionate musicality and impressive technique, the Shanghai Quartet's elegant style melds the delicacy of Eastern music with the emotional breadth of Western repertoire. The group's adventurous spirit and technical mastery allows the Shanghai Quartet to traverse musical genres from masterpieces of Western music by icons such as Beethoven, Schubert and Bartók to cutting-edge contemporary works by the likes of Krzysztof Penderecki, Chen Yi and Zhou Long. Now, the world's premier pipa (Chinese lute) virtuoso, Wu Man, joins the Shanghai for a special all-Chinese program at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Man -- a two-time Grammy-nominated artist -- is a member of Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble and was named Instrumentalist of the Year in 2013 by Musical America. Together, she and the quartet will perform a chamber version of Tan Dun's Ghost Opera, the D.C. premiere of Zhao Jiping and Zhao Lin's Red Lantern and more.
