Now in its 50th season, the Pittsburgh Chamber Music Society celebrates a half-century of fostering the arts across the local landscape with breathtaking displays of musical talent and artistic insight. For one night, the Emerson String Quartet, winner of nine Grammy Awards, three Gramophone Awards, and the coveted Avery Fisher Prize, steps away from its residency at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. to invigorate eardrums amid the arching eaves of Carnegie Music Hall. The auditory experience begins with Mozart’s String Quartet no. 21, where the showcased cello sweeps and gallops across lush motifs and minuets originally commissioned for the King of Prussia. The virtuosic foursome also puts its stamp on Beethoven’s String Quartet no. 12, whose staggered first movement eventually melts into a sonata famous for transforming Haydn’s tears into honey.

The evening’s musical denouement comes with Bartók’s arch and austere String Quartet no. 5, a euphonic pendulum that swings between ethereal symmetry and controlled chaos. Guests take their seats inside the grandiose Carnegie Music Hall, a space lauded for its superb acoustics for chamber music and for being a challenging venue for games of Marco Polo.
