The Amphion String Quartet "plays with a brand of fierce, sharply directed energy," says The New York Times. In its debut Alice Tully Hall recital, the Quartet performs Haydn's "The Bird" Quartet (so named for the playful use of grace notes and trills", Janacek's "Intimate Letters" (fueled by unrequited love), and Grieg's rarely-heard and hyper-romantic Quartet in G minor.
