The Shanghai Quartet

Saturday, July 28 •  8:00PM •  Music Shed

String Quartet in E-flat Major, Op 12
String Quartet No. 3, “Leaves of an Unwritten Diary”
String Quartet in d minor, “Death and the Maiden”

We are delighted to have the Shanghai Quartet back at Norfolk for their first appearances since the 1980s when they were Fellows. Since then they have established a reputation for excellence and have appeared at concert venues around the world. Their program for us this summer includes Penderecki’s String Quartet No. 3, which they premiered in 2008, and one of the great favorites of chamber music, Schubert’s “Death and the Maiden” String Quartet. Consider this work, not a passage to the afterlife (as indicated by its nickname), but a passage from the Classical world of Haydn, Mozart and early Beethoven, into the Romantic world to follow.
