Yu-Hui and the Lydian String Quartet are invited by the Taipei National University of the Arts for a two-week residency in December. Collectively they will give multiple workshops, lectures and masterclasses. Also included in this residency are Lydian’s two public concerts at TNUA. The 12/9 concert showcases Lydian’s contemporary repertoire, including Lee Hyla’s String Quartet No. 3, Philip Glass’ String Quartet No. 5, Chiu-Yu Chou’s String Quartet No. 1, and Yu-Hui’s new work “Mind Like Water.” The second concert on 12/17 is a mixture of old and new, including Mozart’s “Dissonance” String Quartet, Ravel’s String Quartet in F Major, Steven Snowden’s “Appalachian Polaroids”, and Brahms’s String Quintet No. 2 (with TNUA’s viola professor Yi-Wen Chao.)
In addition to music making, Yu-Hui is excited to show the Lydian the fantastic food scene in Taipei.
