All Terrain String Festival: Bolcom 4 x 4

MARCH 31 — APRIL 2, 2017

The Shanghai Quartet and Peak Performances executive director Jedediah Wheeler have dreamt for many years of a string festival that celebrates the richness and diversity of string quartet composition and performance. With the All Terrain String Festival, that dream becomes a reality. Four concerts, each featuring the Shanghai Quartet playing alongside some of the world's most celebrated quartets and performing the work of classic and modern composers, including Pulitzer Prize and National Medal of Arts winner William Bolcom. Appearances from guest artists like legendary jazz bassist John Patitucci and classical guitar superstar Eliot Fisk. Music from four centuries and four continents. And as the festival's grand finale, the Shanghai Quartet performs the world premiere of William Bolcom's String Quartet no. 12, commissioned especially for this festival by Peak Performances.
