ArtistsEmerson String Quartet
The players of the Emerson String Quartet lift out the extraordinary freshness and originality of these works, and add another master composer’s quartet oeuvre to their impressive discography, after having recorded the complete string quartets of Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Brahms, Bartók, Webern and Shostakovich. The artistic strength of Schumann, whose life was dominated by alternating periods of depression and manic creativity, inspires and consoles the quartet members during the uncertain times of a pandemic, and his music may equally inspire listeners.
Since its foundation in 1976, the Emerson String Quartet is ranked among the world’s most acclaimed chamber music ensembles.
“they are mightily impressive.” – Gramophone
“... with musicians like this there must be some hope for humanity.” – The Times (London)
“The performances were everything we have come to expect from this superb ensemble: technically resourceful, musically insightful, cohesive, full of character and always interesting.” – The New York Times
