Date(s) of Performance



Shanghai Quartet


Weigang Li, violin; Yi-Wen Jiang, violin; Honggang Li, viola; Nicholas Tzavaras, cello; and guest artist Wu Man, pipa


Does Montclair State’s resident string quartet ever rest on its laurels? Banish the thought. The Shanghai Quartet and celebrated pipa virtuoso Wu Man perform the world premiere of Lei Liang’s Five Seasons, commissioned by the Quartet. The program also includes Beethoven’s Quartet op. 18, no. 3; Schumann’s Quartet op. 41, no.1; and Wang Huiran’s “Dance of the Yi People,” performed on the pipa.
