 the Emerson Quartet strikes again December 16, 2013 By Steven Mitchell Freedman (Raleigh, NC) See All My Reviews "Although this is an older recording, the Emerson Quartet captures the essence of this music perfectly. What has always impressed me about this group is how they play Beethoven as Beethoven, Dvorak as Dvorak, Bartok as Bartok. The really bring out the essential qualities of the composers whose works they play. They are among the most versatile of quartets. This is beautiful music played beautifully." Report Abuse
