FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 9, 2008

East meets West when Houston Friends of Music presents the Shanghai Quartet
and world-renowned guest artist Wang Guowei, one of the top erhu soloists of his generation


HOUSTON—Houston Friends of Music welcomes the Shanghai Quartet to Stude Concert Hall on Tuesday, Jan. 13, 2009 at 8 p.m. for one performance only. The concert will feature world-renowned guest artist, Wang Guowei, one of the top erhu soloists of his generation. The erhu, a Chinese, two-stringed vertical fiddle, has a history that spans more than 500 years.

Stude Concert Hall is located at The Alice Pratt building on the Rice University campus, entrance 18 off Rice Blvd. or entrance 8 off University. Parking is located in West Lot 1 near Rice Stadium.

Celebrating its 25th Anniversary, the Shanghai Quartet is known for its passionate musicality, impressive technique and multicultural innovations. Its elegant style of melding the delicacy of Eastern music with the emotional breadth of Western repertoire allows it to traverse musical genres, from traditional Chinese folk music and masterpieces of Western music, to cutting- edge contemporary works.

The Quartet—Weigang Li (violin), Yi-Wen Jiang (violin), Honggang Li (viola), and Nicholas Tzavaras (cello)—regularly tours the great music centers of Europe, North and South America and Asia. Performances at many of the most distinguished festivals and concert halls highlight the ensemble’s 25th anniversary season, including appearances at the Ravinia, Tanglewood and Ottawa International Festivals and New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Regarded as one of the supreme chamber ensembles in the world, the Quartet has appeared in a remarkable array of media projects including the soundtrack and a cameo appearance in Woody Allen's 2005 film "Melinda and Melinda" (Bartók Quartet No. 4). They have also appeared on PBS's Great Performances and can be heard regularly on NPR.

“Audiences always look forward to the Shanghai Quartet and we are delighted to have them back this season,” stated Ann Fairbanks, Houston Friends of Music president of the board. “The acoustics, the intimate atmosphere and aesthetics of Stude Concert Hall make it the perfect venue to experience the Shanghai Quartet again and again. The opportunity to hear the Chinese erhu in this beautiful hall will be a special treat for any concertgoer.”

Born in Shanghai, guest artist Wang Guowei joined the Shanghai Traditional Orchestra at age 17, later becoming an erhu soloist and concertmaster. From traditional Chinese folk music to cutting-edge contemporary classical works, the Quartet will feature a range of commissions and premieres. The program includes Quartet Op.11, Erhu Solo by Guowei, Fiddle Suite for Erhu and String Quartet, and Quartet in F Major. The Quartet last performed on the Houston Friends of Music series in November 1999.

To purchase tickets, call 713-348-5400 or visit www.HoustonFriendsofMusic.org

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Houston Friends of Music began 48 years ago for the purpose of presenting great chamber music by great performers to audiences of all generations. Each year, the Houston Friends of Music Board has the difficult task of selecting only nine performing groups from a 100 or more internationally recognized performers.

Generously sponsored by:

Houston Friends of Music is funded in part by grants from the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance

This presentation is supported by Mid-American Arts Alliance with generous underwriting by the National Endowment for the Arts, Texas Commission on the Arts, and foundations, corporations and individuals throughout Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas.
