Formosa Quartet

February 17 @ 7:30 pm

$15 – $55

The Formosa Quartet (Jasmine Lin and Wayne Lee, violins; Che-Yen Chen, viola; Deborah Pae, cello) is one of our favorite ensembles. Hailed as “spellbinding” (The Strad) and “remarkably fine” (Gramophone), they return to the Athenaeum with a program including two of the most beloved string quartets in the repertoire by Mozart and Schumann. This colorful program additionally features a “Formosa Quartet Set,” an assortment of shorts from their collection of folk, pop, jazz, and poetry arrangements, curated especially for each concert.

Generously underwritten by Robert and Ginny Black.


Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
String Quartet in D Minor, K.421

A Formosa Quartet Set
(See for sample sets.)


Robert Schumann
String Quartet No. 2 in F Major, op. 41, no. 2

All concerts are preceded by a pre-concert lecture presented by Nuvi Mehta at 6:45 p.m. (generously underwritten by Gordon Brodfuehrer in honor of Erika Torri) and are followed by a reception with the artists in the Sharon & Joel Labovitz Entry Hall.

The concerts will be in person at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library. There are no physical tickets for these events. Your name will be on an attendee list at the front door. Doors open at 6.:15 p.m. Seating is first-come; first-served.
