The Shanghai Quartet, praised for their “admirable sense of ensemble and a lush Romanticism” (The Strad), produce renditions of Beethoven’s music that are considered authoritative. After the first of their two concerts at the HKAF, the musicians will host a talk on Beethoven’s late period string quartets, his struggle with deafness and the quartet’s interpretations of Beethoven’s passionate musicality
