The outstanding string quartet plays Schubert, Brahms and George Walker.
The New York-based Emerson Quartet has won nine Grammy awards and is regarded as one of the best chamber groups in the world. We are delighted to welcome them on their final world tour. They play Brahms' richly textured first quartet and Schubert's last - its famous first movement alternating between darkness and sunshine. The concert starts with Pulitzer Prize-winning African-American composer George Walker's elegiac piece for strings.
