This imaginative recording project offers virtuoso treatment of folk music from Hungary and Taiwan, illuminating many aspects of the two cultures, all within beautifully rendered new classical compositions.  In addition, the recording incorporates one of the masterpieces of 20th-century string quartet music – Bartok’s incandescent String Quartet No. 4. Winners of both the First Prize and Amadeus Prize at the London International String Competition, the Formosa Quartet was hailed as “spellbinding” by BBC Music Magazine.
