The Emerson String Quartet, formed in 1976, performs with the same benchmark intensity, energy, and commitment as ever. Their list of achievements is unparalleled in the history of string quartets: 30 acclaimed recordings for Deutsche Grammophon since 1987; eight Grammy Awards, including two for Best Classical Album—an unprecedented honor for a chamber music group; three Gramophone Awards; and the coveted Avery Fisher Prize. They have performed complete cycles of the Beethoven, Bartok, and Shostakovich string quartets in musical capitals from New York to London to Vienna, and have collaborated in concerts and on recordings with some of the greatest artists of our time.
