The Shanghai cohesively blends the music’s pulsing rhythms and thrusting figurations with intelligence and grace.” -The New York Times

Celebrating its 30th anniversary season, the Shanghai Quartet has become one of the world’s foremost chamber ensembles and is renowned for its passionate musicality, impressive technique and multicultural innovations.  Capping a season of celebrations, including Chicago Presents’ 70th and Giuseppe Verdi’s 200th, the Shanghai closes an elegant program with Verdi’s one and only string quartet, written during a production delay of his opera, Aida.
