Wu Man and the Shanghai Quartet at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts

Event Details

Chan Centre for the Performing Arts

The Chan Centre for Performing Arts at UBC presents pipa virtuoso Wu Man alongside one of the world’s foremost chamber music ensembles, The Shanghai Quartet, with A Night in Ancient and New China, May 9 at 8pm in the Chan Shun Concert Hall. Wu Man has been praised as a ‘force of nature’ by Gramophone Magazine and has served as inspiration for a number of luminary composers. This unforgettable concert will explore the rich traditions of China’s music, while offering a uniquely contemporary vision with such works as a chamber version of Tan Dun’s Ghost Opera, a suite of traditional Chinese folk songs arranged by violinist Yi-Wen Jiang, solo pipa works by Wu Man, and Beethoven’s String Quartet No.11 in F minor, Op.95 (the “Serioso” quartet).
