The Emerson Quartet is quite simply one of the world’s most distinguished chamber ensembles, and with the recent addition of the British cellist Paul Watkins, its lifetime of experience is now matched by a new freshness. Tonight’s programme delves into the very heart of the Emersons’ musical world: Purcell, Britten and Beethoven’s sublime late quartet Op.132 – music that’s visionary in every sense.
