The Emerson String Quartet's final concert with cellist David Finckel marks the first member change in 34 years for what Time Magazine calls "America's greatest Quartet..." Cellist Paul Watkins replaces Finckel at the end of the 2012-2013 concert season. The all-romantic program being presented includes Dvořák’s Quartet No. 9 in D Minor, Op. 34, Schumann's Quartet in A Major, Op. 41/3 and Grieg's Quartet in G Minor, Op. 27.
The Emerson String Quartet stands alone in the history of string quartets with an unparalleled list of achievements over three decades: More than 30 acclaimed recordings since 1987, nine Grammy Awards including two for Best Classical Album, an unprecedented honor for a chamber music group, three Gramophone Awards, the coveted Avery Fisher Prize and cycles of the complete Beethoven, Bartók, Mendelssohn and Shostakovich string quartets in the world's musical capitals.
