The Ying Quartet takes to the stage at Hatch Recital Hall of the Eastman School of Music this week. The performance features 3 Bs, but at this concert, it's Beethoven, Bartok, and American composer Kenji Bunch. The Grammy-winning ensemble has been a quartet-in-residence at the Eastman School of Music since 1997. Members are Janet Ying, violin; Phillip Ying, viola; David Ying, cello; and, since 2010, Ayano Ninomiya, first violin. Given the intimate size of Hatch Recital Hall and the popularity of the Ying Quartet, tickets are likely to sell out prestissimo. (The December 2 concert was sold out to subscription ticket holders of the Eastman-Ranlet Concert Series.)
The Ying Quartet performs Thursday, December 6, 8 p.m. at Hatch Recital Hall, Eastman School of Music, 433 E. Main St. $10-$20. 454-2100, ESM.Rochester.edu.
