About this Performance

Yi-Wen Jiang's string quartet arrangements of popular Chinese folk melodies set the stage for a celebration of the Year of the Wood Dragon—a symbol of nobility, honor, and success in Chinese culture. A feast of delightful dances evoking the exuberance of village festivities, Tan Dun's Concerto for Six marries Eastern and Western musical traditions in a work that spotlights each player's virtuosity. And Mendelssohn's Second String Quintet finds the composer scaling new heights of drama and lyricism, from the opening gale-force winds of tremulous sound to a blazing finale that races to the finish line. Come early and enjoy a glass of wine on us to complete the perfect night out.
