The Emerson String Quartet pairs the introspective genius of late Shostakovich with late Beethoven. In Beethoven’s otherworldly Op. 127 quartet, the self becomes four voices unified in a ruminative, tender whole. Shostakovich’s Quartet No. 15, the last composed before his death, is an intense, personal examination of the ailing composer’s mortality.

The Program

“Forty years on, the Emerson String Quartet remains at the top of its game.”
Financial Times
“This performance was everything that a string quartet should be—an intelligent conversation between four distinct characters.”
