The Emerson String Quartet plays Beethoven

This performance was recorded on November 2, 2020 at New York’s 92nd Street Y
The Emerson String Quartet

In this first of two concerts, the preeminent Emerson String Quartet performs the repertoire on which they have built their reputation: Beethoven.

They play the composer’s epic, forward-looking Op. 130 Quartet with its groundbreaking original ending, the Grosse Fuge. Stravinsky called the Grosse Fuge “an absolutely contemporary piece of music that will be contemporary forever.” Hear the Emerson Quartet thrillingly underscore that truth.
