    J.S. Bach:  Art of the Fugue, BWV1080 (excerpts) 
    Felix Mendelssohn: Fugue in Eb major, Op. 81, No. 4

    The quartet - all four of whom are current or past members of the Bach Festival Orchestra - includes Johanna Novom and Adriane Post, violins; Kyle Miller, viola and Paul Dwyer, cello. They came together in 2012 in New York City, having first met at the Oberlin Conservatory and The Juilliard School. The musicians share a background in historical performance and a passion for chamber music.  

    The quartet enters a third year as a resident ensemble at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church (NYC) and a second year as Quartet in Residence at the Washington National Cathedral. It was awarded a two-week residency at Aldeburgh Music in the U.K.  Prior to its Bach Festival performance, the quartet will appear at Music Before 1800 (New York), Renaissance & Baroque (Pittsburgh), St. Cecilia Music Series (Austin, TX) and Early Music at St. James (Lancaster, PA).
