Four siblings of the Ying Quartet have been passionate in their pursuit of the music of living Chinese-American composers. Their latest Telarc release, DIM SUM, offers a selection of shorter musical delicacies written by a range of Chinese-American composers, rather than large multi-movement works for string quartet. This fusion of East and West results in fresh and exotic sounds, textures and harmonies, capturing the thoughts, feelings and longings of the universal human spirit.
