“Quercus” is Latin for oak tree and the inspiration for the name of a distinguished chamber ensemble from Raleigh, the City of Oaks. Specializing in the rich musical literature for piano quartet, Quercus performs the work of three modern European masters—Jean Françaix, Karel Husa, and Bohuslav Martinů—whose music reflects the power, propulsion, and innovation associated with the Porsche sports car.
