"The Emerson String Quartet...has the easy virtuosity, precise sense of ensemble, rhythmic vigor, and rich polished tone."
--The Washington Post
The 2013–2014 Fortas season opens with a concert by the eight-time Grammy Award-winning Emerson String Quartet, who the Boston Globe praises for their "extraordinary fusion of experience and authority with audacity and freshness." Founded in 1976, the Emerson String Quartet, which derives its name from the American poet and philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson, has garnered an international reputation for groundbreaking chamber music projects. Last here in 2008 with acclaimed performances of Shostakovich's String Quartet Nos. 9–15, they return with a program that features the hauntingly tragic Mendelssohn F minor String Quartet, Britten's great last String Quartet, honoring his 100th birthday, and Beethoven's technically demanding Third Razumovsky Quartet, a recording of which garnered the Emersons a Grammy.
