As part of the LSO’s East Meets West series, a string quartet from the London Symphony Orchestra and a traditional Chinese string quartet perform a mixture of European and Chinese music. The performance shows the influence of the two cultures on each other’s musical traditions, culminating in an octet of the two quartets playing a new piece specially composed by British Chinese composer, Keting Sun.
The Silk String Quartet is one of the Europe's best professional Chinese music ensembles for classical and contemporary music. Established in 2006, the Quartet has been invited to play prestigious festivals and venues, including the Royal Opera House, Southbank's Purcell Room, St George's in Bristol, the Sage Gateshead and the WOMEX, Manchester, Brighton and Guildford Festivals.
East Meets West generously supported by the Reignwood Culture Foundation.
