The Fearless Curiosity of the Ying Quartet

(Image Journal © 05/08/2019)  

Of all the arts, music is the most difficult to write about. Maybe because it exists only through time — only in the moment that you hear it? Maybe because it has no verbal or visual dimensions? 

What I can say is that the Ying Quartet — one of the leading string quartets in the world — plays as if it’s a single performer. That togetherness among the four musicians is astounding. I don’t mean just that they hit the right notes at the same time; any professional string quartet does that. I mean I witness, when I watch them perform, an extraordinary togetherness of interpretation. 

This togetherness is all the more remarkable because the Ying is no longer composed of the four siblings who first created the quartet: Timothy and Janet on violin, Philip on viola, David on cello. 

I’ve followed the Ying Quartet since their founding in 1988, when they were doctoral students at the Eastman School of Music in my home town of Rochester, New York.  

In 1997, only five years after their graduation from Eastman, the Ying were appointed Faculty Quartet-in-Residence at the Eastman School of Music.
