The Emerson String Quartet’s list of achievements includes everything from nine Grammy Awards to the coveted Avery Fisher Prize to their 2011 induction into the Classical Music Hall of Fame. In a January 2013 review of the quartet’s Carnegie Hall appearance, the New York Times noted that “their impeccable blend and rich, muscular sound have long impressed in a range of repertory” and singled out their performance of a Brahms work for its “beautifully shaped, polished reading, distinguished by its expressive phrasing and the glowing tone of individual performers.” Time has declared them “American’s greatest quartet.” To learn more about this quartet, click here.
