I am excited to announce that I am now representing the Formosa Quartet . While my work for them will primarily get underway for the 2020-2021 season, we are working on a January 2020 tour. I look forward to talking to you soon about the fascinating, moving, and downright extraordinary work of this fine ensemble.
Winners of both the First Prize and Amadeus Prize at the London International String Quartet Competition, Formosa Quartet is “one of the very best quartets of their generation” ( David Soyer, cellist, Guarneri Quartet ). Hailed as “spellbinding” ( BBC Music Magazine ) and “remarkably fine” ( Gramophone ), Formosa has given critically acclaimed performances at the Ravinia Festival, the Caramoor Festival, the Library of Congress, the Da Camera Society of Los Angeles, the Chicago Cultural Center, the Walter Reade Theater at Lincoln Center, Rice University, San Francisco State University, and London’s Wigmore Hall, and has recorded on the EMI, New World Records, and Delos labels.
Bridge Records has just released their latest album, “ From Hungary to Taiwan .”

Formed in 2002 when the four founding members came together for a concert tour of Taiwan, Formosa Quartet is deeply committed to championing Taiwanese music and promoting the arts in the land of its heritage, as well as exploring diverse and adventurous mediums for string quartet.
To celebrate, I chose Formosa Oolong from my collection today.
