Returning by popular demand to the Bender JCC. Renowned for its passionate musicality, impressive technique and multicultural innovations, the Shanghai Quartet has become one of the world’s foremost chamber ensembles. Its elegant style melds the delicacy of Eastern music with the emotional breadth of Western repertoire. Once again they will be joined by clarinetist Alexander Fiterstein, recipient of a 2009 Avery Fisher Career Grant and a Young Concert Artists International winner.
