After 44 seasons comprising thousands of concerts on multiple continents, dozens of recordings, and definitive performances of the greatest works in the literature, the Emerson String Quartet says goodbye to its listeners from the CMS stage.

Two seminal works, chosen by the players, sum up the group’s lifetime of dedication to the classics of the quartet repertoire.


  • Beethoven Quartet in B-flat major for Strings, Op. 130 with "Grosse Fuge," Op. 133 (1825)
  • Schubert Quintet in C major for Two Violins, Viola, and Two Cellos, D. 956, Op. 163 (1828)
