Moores School Guest Recital: Formosa Quartet
Wednesday, February 16, 2022
7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Winners of both the First Prize and Amadeus Prize at the Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition, Formosa Quartet is “one of the very best quartets of their generation” (David Soyer, cellist, Guarneri Quartet). Hailed as “spellbinding” (The Strad) and “remarkably fine” (Gramophone), the Formosa Quartet has given critically acclaimed performances at the Library of Congress, the Da Camera Society of Los Angeles, the Chicago Cultural Center, the Walter Reade Theater at Lincoln Center, the National Concert Hall in Taipei, Wigmore Hall in London, die Glocke Bremen, and the Kammermusiksaal at the Berliner Philharmonie. The founding ensemble’s deep commitment to championing Taiwanese music, and promoting the arts in Taiwan, has expanded to include the exploration of the rich folk traditions and heritages found in America today, and an insatiable search for the fresh and new in string quartet expression.
The Formosa Quartet undertakes a variety of residencies at organizations and institutions across North America and Asia. Formosa is the faculty quartet-in-residence at NYO Canada, holds week-long performance and teaching residencies at Eastern Michigan University; the University of California, Los Angeles; and the University of Houston, and has enjoyed residencies with Art of Élan; Rice University; and University of California, San Diego.
