About

This monumental release documents the Emerson String Quartet’s exceptional longevity and dynamism – founded in 1976, they are still as youthfully active and inquisitive as ever more than 40 years later. Moreover it charts the New York-based ensemble’s musical breadth, encompassing virtually all of the important repertoire for their formation.

This 55-CD collection includes their complete output on DG and features highlights such as the nine Grammy awards, 2 Gramophone Magazine Awards; complete cycles by Shostakovich, Beethoven and Bartók; plus string quartets by Haydn, Tchaikovsky, Schubert; the DECCA Gold album Chaconnes and Fantasias: Music of Britten and Purcell and the The New York Concert with Evgeny Kissin (2 CDs). Also included is a Bonus CD with Encores and Audio Guides.
