The "superb" (New York Times) Shanghai Quartet is one of the world's foremost ensembles. Their "illuminating" (Washington Post) interpretations of both classical and contemporary works fill over 30 albums, and their "ravishingly polished" (LA Times) live performances are in demand everywhere. Join them for works by Hadyn, Dvořák, and a Polish master Krzysztof Penderecki's most recent quartet, composed especially for the Shanghai's.
