Emerson String Quartet

Programme Note

The multiple award-winning Emerson Quartet makes a welcome return to Southbank Centre.

They perform three classic works for string quartet.

Opening with one of Haydn's game-changing quartets, which helped establish the string quartet we know today, Ravel's ever-popular work follows - shifting between playful moments and serene melodies. The concert ends in Beethoven's magnus opus. One of the last pieces he ever wrote, a thrilling journey into the heart of the human psyche.
