About This Performance

Hailed as “spellbinding” (The Strad) and “remarkably fine” (Gramophone), the Formosa Quartet makes its PCMS debut with Society favorites Hsin-Yun Huang and Peter Wiley. The afternoon culminates in Dvořák’s String Sextet in A Major, Op. 48, a work full of delightful, spontaneous invention that the Czech composer wrote over the course of just two weeks in 1878.

Haydn: Quartet in D Minor, Op. 76, No. 2, Fifths
