The Emerson String Quartet is among the great established names in chamber music ensembles, its career spanning nearly forty years. Today they contrast Brahms' lyrical Second String Quartet in A minor with Bartok's Fourth String Quartet - a highly energetic but taut work, widely considered to be Bartok's finest and most imaginative composition.
