The Emerson is on everyone’s list of the chamber groups you want to hear, especially in Beethoven. The late Beethoven Quartets are the very pinnacle of the art form and provide moments of solace, anguish, joy and wonder. In Beethoven’s own words, “He who divines the secret of my music is delivered from the misery that haunts the world.” Could there be any better way to conclude our Chamber Music Series this year?

“… with musicians like this there must be somehope for humanity.”
