From Hungary to Taiwan is a milestone album from the award-winning Formosa Quartet. Released by Bridge Records, the album pairs three imaginative new works with Béla Bartók's towering Fourth String Quartet, a nod to the group's Taiwanese heritage and a celebration of "folk", in every sense of the word.

The program juxtaposes two pairs: Hungarian folk music in two representations, and Taiwanese folk music in two representations. Formosa Quartet decided to commission composers Dana Wilson, Lei Liang, and Wei-Chieh Lin to create this fascinating view of cultural identity.
