Wu Man and The Shanghai Quartet explore the music of China with a new multimedia work by the eminent Chinese composer Zhao Jiping, in collaboration with his son Zhao Lin, featuring some of his most famous scores for Chinese cinema (Raise the Red Lantern, To Live, Farewell My Concubine). Looking back to their roots, but with a contemporary vision, these artists meld the sounds of China with the Western string quartet in an unforgettable evening of grand music.
