Music@Menlo Winter Series I: Emerson String Quartet
The renowned Emerson String Quartet presents music by three of the quartet literature’s most seminal composers. Haydn’s g minor Quartet demonstrates the innovative spirit that would establish Haydn as the father of the string quartet. Shostakovich’s penultimate quarte complements Haydn with a distinctly modern tongue. The program concludes with Mendelssohn’s deeply expressive Opus 80 Quartet, likewise composed during the composer’s final months.
