Ying Quartet

Chamber Music Concert

The Ying Quartet occupies a position of unique prominence in the classical music world, combining brilliantly communicative performances with a fearlessly imaginative view of chamber music in today's world. Now in its third decade, the Quartet has established itself as an ensemble of the highest musical qualifications. Their performances regularly take place in many of the world's most important concert halls, from Carnegie Hall to the Sydney Opera House. At the same time, the Quartet's belief that concert music can also be a meaningful part of everyday life has led them to perform in settings as diverse as the workplace, schools, juvenile prisons, and the White House.

The Ying Quartet performed at SBMA in 2013 and 2017 and this performance will include Dvorak’s Cypresses (selections), Carter Pann’s Love Letters, Paul Moravec’s Anniversary Dances, and Dvorak’s Quartet in E-flat Major Op. 51. Dvorak’s Cypresses is a collection of love songs for string quartet and the full program expertly places it alongside similar inspired music of living composers—Carter Pann and Pulitzer Prize-winning Paul Moravec.

Chamber Music Concerts at SBMA are supported by the Katharine Putnam and Reginald M. Faletti Concert Fund with additional support from the Curletti Fund.
