The Blair String Quartet is one of Nashville's longest-lived chamber ensembles. Made up of faculty members from the Blair School of Music at Vanderbilt, the current lineup consists of violinists Stephen Miahky and Cornelia Heard, John Kochanowski on viola and cellist Felix Wang. For this performance in Studio C, they brought a stalwart of the quartet repertoire and one of Haydn's least-performed quartets.
