Shanghai Strings

Audio will be available later today.

The Shanghai String Quartet has built its reputation on brilliant performances of the classics of Western music. But it's also brought a great deal of music from China to our attention. We'll hear a little of both — the third movement of Dvorak's American Quartet, and the traditional Chinese Yao Dance, arranged by violinist Yi-Wen Jiang.
