The Han Quartet was founded by outstanding young faculty members from the Shanghai Conservatory of Music. Besides having an extensive repertoire (ranging from classical works to 21st century masterpieces), the members work closely with Chinese composers, and are enthusiastic advocates of contemporary chamber music. The Han Quartet is the only Asian quartet to have been accepted into the European Chamber Music Academy (ECMA), was the first Asian string quartet to perform at the K & K International Music Festival (Malaysia), and was the first Chinese quartet to be featured by Denmark’s The Night Men Chamber Music Society. In 2012, the members transcribed J.S. Bach’s Three Part Inventions into a string trio version for two violins and viola. The transcription was later published by the Shanghai Music Publishing House following their successful recording of the work.
