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.

 

This performance is also a part of the White Light Festival.
