THE EMERSON STRING QUARTET - Concert extract
The Emerson String Quartet, one of the greatest string quartets of the past four decades, will disband in October 2023 after 47 years of a rich and award-winning musical life. Their latest album, Infinite Voyage, recently recorded with soprano Barbara Hannigan, features one of the most important chamber music works of the 20th century, Schoenberg's String Quartet No. 2 for soprano and string quartet, as well as Hindemith's sublime Melancholie, Op.13.
For this concert at the Fondation, the Emerson String Quartet’s final appearance in France, the musicians wished to celebrate French music by enhancing the programme with Maurice Ravel's immense String Quartet in F major.
7 October 2023 – 8pm
Barbara Hannigan is joining the Emerson String Quartet for their farewell concerts, first at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris on 7 October, then in Milan, for the Società del Quartetto, on 10 October 2023.
