Emerson String Quartet

Emerson String Quartet - The New Complete Recordings on Deutsche Grammophon (55CD)

This monumental release documents the Emerson String Quartet’s exceptional longevity and dynamism – founded in 1976, they are still as youthfully active and inquisitive as ever more than 40 years later. Moreover it charts the New York-based ensemble’s musical breadth, encompassing virtually all of the important repertoire for their formation.

This 55 CD collection includes their complete output on DG and features complete cycles by Shostakovich, Beethoven and Bartók; plus String Quartets by Haydn, Tchaikovsky, Schubert; The DECCA Gold Album Chaconnes and Fantasias: Music of Britten and Purcell and The New York Concert with Evgeny Kissin (2CDs). Also included is a Bonus CD with Encores and Audio Guides.
