Fontana Presents: The Shanghai Quartet with Wu Man

 

Dalton Center Recital Hall, Western Michigan University

7:30 pm

Kalamazoo, MI 49008

 

The acclaimed Shanghai Quartet and pipa (Chinese lute) virtuoso Wu Man unite to perform new works by Beethoven and contemporary Chinese composers for string quartet and pipa. Called wonderfully ferocious and illuminating by The Washington Post, the Shanghai Quartet are recognized for their unique fluency in both Eastern folk and Western Classical idioms. Hailed as the world's premier pipa virtuoso and a leading ambassador of Chinese music, GRAMMY Award-nominated musician Wu Man is "the artist most responsible for bringing the pipa to the Western world" (Los Angeles Times). She has built a career as a soloist, educator, and composer, giving her lute-like instrument — which has a 2000-year history in China — a new role in both traditional and contemporary music.
