Emerson String Quartet

Chamber Music Series

Tuesday, July 11 | 6:00PM

Celebrating their 40th anniversary, this peerless ensemble is revered around the world for its remarkable versatility. Here, the pure tones of delicate Baroque fantasies contrast with Shostakovich’s memorial tribute to his late wife, full of furious longing and acerbic wit. Culminating in the elegant, powerful symmetry of Beethoven’s famous Op. 131, this promises to be a fascinating, unforgettable evening.
