When a quartet from The Philadelphia Orchestra (my home town) recently found itself grounded on a plane at the Beijing airport, they decided after three long hours (in coach!) that enough was enough. It was time to provide musical relief to passengers sharing in their fatigue and frustration. Above you’ll find Juliette Kan and Daniel Han on violin; Che-Hung Chen on viola; and Yumi Kendall on cello, treating everyone to an impromptu version of Dvořák’s String Quartet No. 12 in F Major, Op. 96 “American” Finale.
