The Cooperstown Summer Music Festival presents the Ying Quartet.  Cellist David Ying joins us to talk about the program of quartets by Haydn and Tchaikovsky, and a new commission by Christopher Theofanidis. He also talks about how he and his siblings tried very hard to not use their surname as their quartet name.
