About This Performance

Drawing inspiration from the great American poet and philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson, the Emerson Quartet approaches each performance with an insight, enthusiasm and technical mastery easily connected to its namesake. It stands alone in the history of string quartets with an unparalleled list of achievements over three decades: more than 30 acclaimed recordings, nine Grammy Awards (including two for Best Classical Album, an unprecedented honor for a chamber music group) and the coveted Avery Fisher Prize.
