Violinist sues quartet over China censorshipmain
The violinist Yi-Wen Jiang is suing the Shanghai Quartet for half a million dollars in unfair dismissal, arguing that he was forced to resign after the other players objected to social-media comments he had made that were critical of the Chinese regime.
The quartet formed in Shanghai in 1983 and is resident at Montclair State University in New Jersey.
It says the violinist resigned of his own free well.
The case continues.
