SAINT-SAËNS | COMPLETE WORKS FOR VIOLIN, CELLO, & ORCHESTRA (2014)

[Deborah Pae’s] superb tone, judicious and carefully chosen phrasing, and a high level of interpretative intelligence are the hallmarks...Listening to [her] perform with tremendous technical assurance and a maturity and understanding well beyond [her] years is a source of unceasing delight throughout this recording.

LEI LIANG | LUMINOUS (2016)

Verge by Formosa Quartet

Verge Quartet is, in part, based on Mongolian folk music, its gestural language as well as its folksongs. That said, it is no pastiche piece. The folk influences are integrated into Liang’s overall compositional approach, not as an East-meets-West hybridization, but in truly organic fashion. The Formosa Quartet plays the work with brilliant energy and carefully detailed authenticity.

FORMOSA QUARTET | FROM HUNGARY TO TAIWAN (2019)

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 arguably, the greatest masterpiece 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.
