About The Artist

Winner of nine Grammy awards, the Emerson String Quartet demonstrates its astonishing versatility on this program that traverses three musical epochs—Classical, Romantic and Contemporary—of masterworks originating in Austria (Haydn and Schubert) and Hungary (Bartók, shortly before his move to the United States). Speaking of the Emerson ensemble, The Times of London stated, “With musicians like this, there must be some hope for humanity.”
