The performances were everything we have come to expect from this superb ensemble: technically resourceful, musically insightful, cohesive, full of character and always interesting.
—The New York Times
The Emerson String Quartet begins another season of unparalleled musical magic at the Smithsonian. Their list of achievements includes everything from nine Grammy Awards to the coveted Avery Fisher Prize to induction into the American Classical Music Hall of Fame last year.
Everywhere they play, they exhibit the same benchmark intensity, integrity, energy, and commitment that they have demonstrated since forming the Emerson String Quartet in 1976.
