Tune in at 10 pm Monday, as two string quartets — the Jupiter and Orion, the latter with pianist Anne-Marie McDermott — perform folk-inspired pieces. First, the Jupiter String Quartet will play "The American" string quartet by the Czech-born Antonin Dvořák, inspired by his travels in the United States. Orion and McDermott's performance of Hungarian-born composer Ernõ Dohnányi's Piano Quintet No. 2 follows.
