Schubert, Brahms and George Walker by the New York-based Quartet which has won nine Grammy awards and is regarded as one of the best chamber groups in the world.

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.

Walker:
Lyric for Strings (7)
Brahms:
String Quartet no. 1 in C minor, op. 51 (33)
Schubert:
String Quartet no. 15 in G major, D. 887 (48)
The performances were everything we have come to expect from this superb ensemble: technically resourceful, musically insightful, cohesive, full of character and always interesting.
