Emerson String Quartet

Farewell Season

The Baker-Baum Concert Hall

After more than 45 years, one of the most acclaimed and venerable string quartets in the world graces us with a stop on its farewell tour. The Emerson String Quartet’s impact on the world of classical music performance cannot be overstated. With more than 30 acclaimed recordings, nine GRAMMYs® (including two for Best Classical Album), three Gramophone Awards, the Avery Fisher Prize, and Musical America’s “Ensemble of the Year” award, the Quartet has collaborated with some of today’s most esteemed composers to premiere new works, keeping the string quartet form alive and relevant. This program of masterworks will leave you breathless and not ready to say goodbye.

“With musicians like this, there must be some hope for humanity.”
