"America's leading string quartet"
--The Washington Post
Following their sold-out October 2013 Fortas engagement, eight-time Grammy Award(r)-winning Emerson String Quartet, who the Boston Globe praises for their "extraordinary fusion of experience and authority with audacity and freshness," returns with another dazzling program. Founded in 1976, the Emerson String Quartet, has garnered an international reputation for groundbreaking chamber music projects.
This season, they bring a program that features three works by Purcell, two Fantasias and his stately Chacony arranged by Britten; Beethoven's stirring "Harp" Quartet; and Ravel's beautiful String Quartet.
