Shanghai Quartet with Peter Serkin, piano

Friday, November 15, 2013 at 7:30 p.m.
Camp Concert Hall, Booker Hall of Music

The Shanghai Quartet returns to Camp Concert Hall – this time joined by virtuoso pianist Peter Serkin – for an incredible evening of music-making. The program will feature Bright Sheng’s Dance Capriccio (2011), written for Serkin and the Shanghai Quartet and based on the folk dance traditions of the Himalayan Sherpa ethnic group. The program will also include Verdi’s Quartet in E Minor and Dvorák’s Piano Quintet in A Major.

Formed at the Shanghai Conservatory in 1983, the Shanghai Quartet is renowned for their technical virtuosity and superb musicality. Melding the delicacy of Eastern music with the emotional breadth of Western repertoire, the Shanghai Quartet effortlessly traverses musical genres from masterpieces of Western music to cutting-edge contemporary works.

Pianist Peter Serkin is one of the world’s most thoughtful and individualistic musicians performing today. Throughout his illustrious career, Serkin has conveyed the very essence of five centuries of musical repertoire. “He is one of the supreme musicians of our time” (New York Magazine).
