Emerson String Quartet

Pre-concert Talk 2:00 pm

“Let’s make one thing perfectly clear: The ‘old’ Emerson String Quartet never phoned one in.  But this new group [with cellist Paul Watkins]… complemented their customary power, finesse and unanimity with a fresh, palpable vigor… and it was electrifying” (The New York Times).  Winner of nine Grammy Awards and an unprecedented plethora of distinctions and honors, “The Emerson has staked its claim to being the one indispensable quartet in a world that is constantly creating more, excellent ensembles” (Newsday).
