The Shanghai Quartet regularly tours the great music centers of North and South America, Asia, and Europe. They appear frequently at New York’s Carnegie Hall and their travels have taken them to London, Vienna, Prague and Australia’s Sydney Opera House.
One of the works on tonight’s program, Opus 59 # 3, is a work first played at Music Mountain’s very first concert on August 22, 1930 by Music Mountain’s founding group, the Gordon String Quartet.
