Featured along with the Shanghai Quartet will be guest artist, Wang Guowei, one of the world’s leading erhu players...
“Born in Shanghai, he joined the Shanghai Traditional Orchestra at age 17, later becoming erhu soloist and concertmaster. What the audience heard, in lovely interchanges with the voices, is an erhu, a two-string Chinese fiddle...gorgeously played by Wang Guowei.” –The New York Times
The Shanghai Quartet will play pieces by Barber, Chen Yi and Ravel, and there will be a special erhu solo by Wang Guowei.
