The Emerson String Quartet stands alone in the history of string quartets with an unparalleled list of achievements over three decades: more than thirty acclaimed recordings since 1987; nine Grammy® Awards (including two for Best Classical Album, an unprecedented honor for a chamber music group); three Gramophone Awards; and the coveted Avery Fisher Prize for cycles of the complete Beethoven, Bartók, Mendelssohn and Shostakovich string quartets in the world's musical capitals from New York to London and Vienna. The Quartet has collaborated in concerts and on recordings with some of the greatest artists of our time.
Formed in the bicentennial year of the United States, the Emerson String Quartet took its name from the great American poet and philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson. Violinists Eugene Drucker and Philip Setzer, who alternate in the first chair position, are joined by violist Lawrence Dutton and cellist David Finckel.
At W&L, the Quartet will perform Schumann's Op. 41, No. 3 in A major, Bartok's No. 3, and Beethoven's Op. 59, No. 1.
