The Ying Quartet occupies a position of unique prominence in the classical music world. They combine brilliantly communicative performances with a fearlessly imaginative view of chamber music in today’s world.
Now in their second decade as a quartet, the Ying Quartet has established themselves as an ensemble of the highest musical qualifications in their tours across the United States and abroad. Their performances regularly take place in many of the world’s most important concert halls, from Carnegie Hall to the Sydney Opera House.
At the same time, the Quartet’s belief that concert music can also be a meaningful part of everyday life has also drawn them to perform in settings as diverse as the workplace, schools, juvenile prisons and the White House. In fact the Ying Quartet’s constant quest to explore the creative possibilities of the string quartet has led them to an unusually diverse array of musical projects and interests.
