The honor and distinct pleasure of presenting the Emerson Quartet has been ongoing since 2002 when the Emerson became Quartet in Residence at Stony Brook University. In three concerts during 2017-2018, the complete late quartets of Beethoven plus works of Purcell, Shostakovich & Bartok will be featured.
The Emerson String Quartet has amassed an unparalleled list of achievements over four decades: more than thirty acclaimed recordings, nine Grammys® (including two for Best Classical Album), three Gramophone Awards, the Avery Fisher Prize, Musical America’s “Ensemble of the Year” and collaborations with many of the greatest artists of our time. Members of the Emerson are Eugene Drucker and Philip Setzer, violins; Lawrence Dutton, viola; and Paul Watkins, cello.
