T'ang Quartet started the 30th anniversary celebration with a programme that went back to their humble beginnings – their intent distilled in their selection of a quartet work by Haydn, an Austrian composer of the classical era known for his part in the development of chamber music.
T'ang Quartet performed two pieces – Haydn String Quartet Op.76 No.2 Fifths, and Borodin String Quartet No.2 in D Major.
Founding member Ng Yu-Ying said: "It is time for us to go back to the music that inspired us to become musicians, and these are the champions of chamber music that made us want to become a professional quartet 30 years ago."
The outing also formally introduced T'ang's new members – Han Oh and Wang Zihao. The former has been with the Quartet for two years while the latter joined less than a year ago. For their new repertoire, the Quartet will endeavour to tackle the major works of the great masters such as Haydn, Mozart, Brahms and Beethoven while keeping their edge in performing contemporary works and new ones by living composers.
