Their finale will include founding member Eric Wilson joining the Quartet to perform Schubert’s sublime cello quintet. “The Emerson performances represented an extraordinary fusion of experience and authority with audacity and freshness.”(The Boston Globe)

Another returning ensemble, this “super-trio” is an audience favourite. “…the stuff of legend.

Johannes Brahms: String Quartet in A minor, Opus 51, No.2
