About Emerson String Quartet: Bartók & Beethoven Part 1
The “indispensable” Emerson String Quartet (Newsday) embarks on an intrepid three-concert series pairing Beethoven’s “Razumovsky” Quartets with the complete Bartók cycle. This first program opens with Bartók’s Third Quartet, an audacious example of tightly constructed modernism. The brave new world of Beethoven’s “Razumovsky” Quartet in F major reverberates through Bartók’s First Quartet, in which the Hungarian pays homage to the German master.
