4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
The Ying Quartet will be broadcast live to you by WCMS on December 6th at 4:00 pm, performing an all-Beethoven program: Beethoven String Quartet No. 3 in D Major, Op.18; and Beethoven String Quartet No. 16 in F Major, Op. 135. There will also be a post-concert Q&A with the musicians in which you can participate.
The Ying occupies a position of unique prominence in the classical music world, combining electrifying performances with a fearlessly imaginative view of chamber music in today’s world. The Ying has established itself as an internationally celebrated ensemble playing the world’s most important concert halls, and their belief that concert music can be an integral part of community life has drawn the ensemble to take on unconventional projects and perform in diverse settings. Their much-heralded collaboration with the Turtle Island Quartet won a Grammy Award in 2005, and a collaboration with the Billy Childs Chamber Jazz Ensemble was nominated for a Grammy in 2010. The Ying Quartet’s Dim Sum features music by Chinese-American composers that merges the Western string quartet with the aural world of traditional Chinese music. The Ying maintains full-time faculty positions at The Eastman School of Music, where they are currently Quartet-in-Residence.
