Emerson String Quartet

Biography

Active: 1976 - ; New York, NY
Since its formation in 1976, the Emerson String Quartet has gradually achieved recognition as one of the world's top chamber ensembles. The group's reputation partially rests upon its daring interpretations of core string quartet repertory; it has performed the complete quartet cycles of Beethoven, Shostakovich, Mendelssohn, and Bartók in major concert halls around the world, and its interpretations tend toward the personal, the passionate, and Read more even the hell-for-leather. Audiences have responded enthusiastically to the quartet's involvement with the music it performs. The Emerson (named for Ralph Waldo Emerson) has recorded prolifically since signing with the Deutsche Grammophon label in 1987, and the quartet has won nine Grammy awards, including two for Best Classical Album.

One of those awards came in 1989, for a recording of the six Bartók string quartets that the Emerson made after presenting all six works in a single concert for its debut at New York's Carnegie Hall. The Bartók discs also won Gramophone's Record of the Year award in Britain, one of the quartet's three Gramophone awards. That concert typified the quartet's programming philosophy; the Emerson has attracted both devotees and newcomers with music-making that is ambitious, intellectually challenging, and at the same time a bit extreme in such a way as to attract widespread attention. In 1997 the Emerson presented Beethoven's cycle of 16 quartets in a group of eight concerts at New York's Lincoln Center, each featuring two Beethoven quartets paired with modern works that showed the extent of Beethoven's long shadow in some way. In early 2005, the Emerson presented Mendelssohn's quartets in both New York and England, juxtaposed with works by Mendelssohn's contemporaries. Since its founding, the Emerson has actively commissioned new works from a variety of composers of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, ranging from the complex modernist Wolfgang Rihm to the accessible Edgar Meyer.

The members of the Emerson String Quartet -- violinists Eugene Drucker and Philip Setzer, violist Lawrence Dutton, and cellist David Finckel -- have maintained top-flight solo careers of their own. The group is based in Newy York City, and in 2002 they became quartet-in-residence at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. Their long list of awards includes the prestigioius Avery Fisher Prize in 2004, and the group members have received honorary doctorates from Middlebury College, Wooster College, and Bard College.

The Emerson is committed to collaborative projects with other artists. Their 2000 performance of the Shostakovich quartets culminated in a multimedia work called The Noise of Time, which mixed the quartet's performance of the composer's String Quartet No. 15 with film, dance, and taped readings. The group has performed many benefit concerts to raise finds for causes such as the fight against AIDS, nuclear disarmament, and world hunger. Read less
