Wu Man, Pipa Shanghai String Quartet- A Night in Ancient and New China

January 12th, 2017 All Day

January 12  Wu Man, Pipa Shanghai String Quartet- A Night in Ancient and New China

Armstrong Auditorium, Edmond

Info: The pipa is a lute-like instrument with a history of over 2,000 years in China. Wu Man, the instrument’s premier virtuoso, is the leading ambassador of Chinese music and “the artist most responsible for bringing the pipa to the Western World” (LA Times). Invited by Yo-Yo Ma to the famous Silk Road Project, she has carved out a career which gives this ancient instrument a contemporary role. Renowned for its passionate musicality, impressive technique and multicultural innovations, the Shanghai Quartet’s elegant style melds the delicacy of Eastern music with the emotional breadth of Western repertoire, allowing it to traverse musical genres including traditional Chinese folk music, masterpieces of Western music and cutting-edge contemporary works. Time: 7:30pm
