Emerson String Quartet
Ralph Waldo Emerson loved music: "Music takes us out of the actual," he wrote, "and whispers to us dim secrets that startle our wonder..." It is only fitting that his namesake Quartet has awed the musical world for more than 35 years - winning nine Grammy Awards, three Grammophone Awards and the Avery Fisher Prize, among other accolades. The Quartet has also been featured in publications from The New Yorker and USA Today to Grammophone and The Strad, and is the subject of two award-winning documentaries.
