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 returns for its 36th year at the Smithsonian. Violinists Eugene Drucker and Philip Setzer, violist Lawrence Dutton, and cellist Paul Watkins perform a season that displays the range and unparalleled musicianship of an ensemble that has been hailed as “the one indispensable quartet” by Newsweek.
