The Ying Quartet poses for a picture with their instruments.

Now in its third decade, the Grammy Award–winning Ying Quartet has established itself as an ensemble of the highest musical qualifications. They are renowned for combining brilliantly communicative performances with a fearlessly imaginative view of chamber music in today's world. “The Ying Quartet came as close to the ideal as possible,” praised the Los Angeles Times. “A dazzling player who hears borders between styles as limitations best ignored” (Philadelphia Inquirer), Xavier Foley is known for communicating his virtuosity and passion for music on the double bass. Their program pairs Haydn’s Quartet in B-flat Major with works by the wildly talented and inventive Foley, including a brand new work co-commissioned by The Clarice. Foley then joins the quartet for Dvořák’s virtuosic String Quintet No. 2 in G Major.
