Shanghai Quartet; renowned for its passionate musicality, impressive technique, and multicultural innovations has become one of the world’s foremost chamber ensembles. For this season's Modlin Center performance, violinist Soovin Kim and pianist Orion Weiss will join Shanghai Quartet for Chausson’s powerful and dramatic concerto for violin, piano, and string quartet. One of the most sought-after soloists of his generation, pianist Orion Weiss has brought his deeply felt and exceptionally crafted performances to major American orchestras. Called “a superlative soloist” by the Miami Herald, violinist Soovin Kim is an exciting young player equally gifted in concerto, recital, and chamber music repertoire.
This evening’s program will include Haydn’s String Quartet in D Major, Op. 20, No. 4; Dun’s Feng Ya Song (String Quartet No. 1 revised 2018); and Chausson’s Concerto for Violin, Piano and String Quartet in D Major, Op. 21.
Arrive at 6:30 PM for a pre-performance discussion with members of the ensemble, led by WCVE Music classical host Mike Goldberg.
