Spectacular Sound

MKI Artists was able to see the Ying Quartet perform here in Vermont this past weekend, and was again reminded of the incredible quality of the Quartet’s music-making. Their longevity – nearly thirty years spent together as a group – and incredible ability to communicate has resulted in a sound that’s nothing short of spectacular.

Over the years the Yings have embraced new commissions, unusual collaborations, and a general sense of excitement about what string quartets have to offer. Their performances of the core quartet literature show them to be one of the leading ensembles of their generation, with a voice that’s both mature and pioneering.
