Juilliard String Quartet, Joined by Qing Jiang, Will Present Works by Beethoven and Dvorak

Juilliard String Quartet which includes Roger Tapping on viola, Areta Zhulla and Ronald Copes on violins, and Astrid Schween on cello will perform on Sunday, November 14 at 2 p.m. at the Weis Center for the Performing Arts. Featured on piano will be Qing Jiang. Masks are required.

The performance is sponsored, in part, by Sam and Nancy Craig and The Kushell Music Endowment of Bucknell University and the Department of Music.

With unparalleled artistry and enduring vigor, the Juilliard String Quartet continues to inspire audiences around the world. Founded in 1946 and hailed by The Boston Globe as “the most important American quartet in history,” the ensemble draws on a deep and vital engagement to the classics while embracing the mission of championing new works, a vibrant combination of the familiar and the daring.

Each performance of the Juilliard String Quartet is a unique experience, bringing together the four members’ profound understanding, total commitment and unceasing curiosity in sharing the wonders of the string quartet literature.

Praised by the New York Times as a “fiery musician” whose playing is “vigorous and passionate,” Qing Jiang has emerged as a versatile musician who is equally known as a performer, teacher, and an advocate of contemporary music. 

While at the Weis Center, they will perform Beethoven: String Quartet in B flat major, Op. 130, with Grosse Fuge, Op. 133 and Dvorák: Piano Quintet No. 2 in A major, Op. 81.
