What You'll Get
The Emerson String Quartet returns for its 38th season as artists-in-residence at the Smithsonian, with their reputation as true classical superstars more than intact. After all, they've won nine Grammy Awards -- including two for Best Classical Album -- three Gramophones and the coveted Avery Fisher Prize. They've also released more than 30 acclaimed recordings and were recently inducted into the American Classical Music Hall of Fame. The New York Times says this "superb ensemble" is "technically resourceful, musically insightful, cohesive, full of character and always interesting." And the quartet is more electrifying than ever, with its stellar lineup of cellist Paul Watkins, violinists Eugene Drucker and Philip Setzer, and violist Lawrence Dutton. Experience this epic team performing masterworks by Purcell, Beethoven, Britten and Shostakovich, as well as a solo recital featuring Watkins, at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum in Washington, D.C.
