Master Class on Friday, March 31, 2 p.m.
The Vega String Quartet, comprised of Domenic Salerni & Jessica Shuang Wu, violins; Yinzi Kong, viola; and Guang Wang, cello; is the Quartet in Residence at Emory University. The New York Times raved that their "playing that had a kind of clean intoxication to it, pulling the listener along...the musicians took real risks in their music making..." The quartet is a frequent guest at music festivals nationwide and has performed in major venues including Weill Hall and Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall, Bargemusic and Duke Hall at the Royal Academy of Music, London. The Vega's major projects since being named Quartet in Residence at Emory in 2006 include the complete cycle of Beethoven Quartets, a Bach–Bartók cycle; and the commissions and premieres of works by numerous leading composers.
