Da Camera closes its exploration of the evolution of the string quartet with this program encompassing Bartok’s groundbreaking masterpiece of 1936 and works by two of today’s leading composers. Winner of the 2011 Rome Prize, Lei Liang has been heralded as “one of the most exciting voices in New Music” (The Wire). The renowned Shanghai Quartet is one of the world's foremost chamber ensembles. Musical America’s Instrumentalist of the Year for 2013, Wu Man has created a new life for her instrument, which has a history of over 2,000 years in China.
