The string quartet has long been one of chamber music’s most popular genres. In a program revealing the ensemble’s abundant possibilities, the fabled Emerson String Quartet is joined by the formidable pianist Shai Wosner for collaborative works by a pair of prolific geniuses: Mozart and Bolcom. This engaging program concludes with Dvořák’s ultimate tribute to his beloved homeland: his final quartet.
