The Program

One of the great string quartets of our time joins with acclaimed viola virtuoso Nokuthula Ngwenyama for an invigorating evening of chamber music. From the finely wrought fantasia and fugue by Purcell and Bach, respectively, emerge the restless transcendence of Mozart’s G-minor string quintet and the smoldering drama of Mendelssohn’s late-period quintet in B-flat major.

“Forty years on, the Emerson String Quartet remains at the top of its game.”
– Financial Times
“An elegant soloist who projects a rare aura of calm beauty when she plays.”
– Cincinnati Enquirer on Nokuthula Ngwenyama
