Emerson String Quartet (Canceled)

NEC’s Jordan Hall

This performance has been canceled. We hope to bring back this artist to Boston for a future season. 



The Emerson String Quartet has maintained its status as one of the world’s premier chamber music ensembles for more than four decades. “With musicians like this,” wrote a reviewer for The Times, London, “there must be some hope for humanity.” The Quartet has made more than 30 acclaimed recordings, and has been honored with nine GRAMMY Awards (including two for Best Classical Album), three Gramophone Awards, the Avery Fisher Prize, and Musical America’s “Ensemble of the Year” award. An Emerson String Quartet performance is simply indispensable.


Alexander Borodin | Quartet No. 2 in D Major

Thomas Adès | Four Quarters 

Joseph Haydn | Seven Last Words

“The Emerson has staked its claim to being the one indispensable quartet in a world that is constantly creating more, excellent ensembles.”


“These are high-powered performances with at times terrifying attack and explosive accenting...they are mightily impressive.”
