The wisdom of age delivers clarity within complexity, offering a brilliance that is reflected through the vitality of new interpreters. The recently reconfigured Emerson String Quartet brings its newfound “boyish exuberance” (New York Times) to the late quartets of Dmitry Shostakovich, coupled in this series with the final quartets of Mendelssohn, Britten, and Schubert.
