The UChicago Presents series has been killing it in recent years, especially as pertains to its roster of string quartets. World-class bruisers like the Takács, Jupiter and Pacifica (the UChicago ensemble-in-residence) quartets have made appearances, and now the Hyde Park institution is adding the excellent Shanghai Quartet to the list. With over 25 albums under its collective belt, this band is responsible for a heavy dose of new commissions, including the one I’m most itching to hear them play: Krzysztof Penderecki’s String Quartet No. 3: Leaves from an unwritten diary.
