Both singers and musicians deserve the highest ratings for their glorious work, but the selections were painful to listen to. I'd see them again, gladly, but only if they were playing more conventional music.

Description

The renowned vocal ensemble,Chanticleer, joins the Shanghai Quartet  for the southern California premiere of _From the Path of Beauty, _a lyrical and dramatic song cycle for voice and string quartet. In this specially-commissioned work, celebrated composer "Chen Yi ":http://hometown.aol.com/chenyi/myhomepage/profile.htmlshares her deeply personal feelings about her native country, China. The Barclay is especially pleased to invite Chanticleer back to their stage. This “orchestra of voices,” combined with the intimate acoustics of the theatre’s Cheng Hall, never fails to astonish.
