Wu Man and the Shanghai Quartet
Sat., May 9, 2015 at 8:00 pm
Chan Shun Concert Hall
Pipa virtuoso Wu Man has been called "a force of nature" by Gramophone Magazine and has acted as muse and inspiration for contemporary composers ranging from Tan Dun to Terry Riley. The Shanghai Quartet is one of the world's foremost chamber music ensembles, known for their passionate musicality and impressive technique. For this special concert, the artists will explore the great music of China, looking back to their roots, but with a contemporary vision.
Melding the uniquely Chinese sound of the pipa with that of a western string quartet, this memorable evening titled A Night in Ancient and New China features a chamber version of Tan Dun's Ghost Opera, a suite of traditional Chinese folk songs arranged by violinist Yi-Wen Jiang, and solo pipa works by Wu Man.
