Easily among the world's greatest ensembles and long a favorite with Stanford audiences, the Emerson String Quartet - founded in 1976 - has a storied performance history, a juicy yet precise performance style, and nine Grammys. Hailed as "one of the most impressive of American string quartets" (New York Times), the foursome is lauded for its embrace of new works as well as the classics. Besides quartets by Ravel and Debussy, it will perform an early quartet by Alban Berg.


  • Ravel: String Quartet in F Major

  • Berg: String Quartet, op. 3

  • Debussy: String Quartet in G Minor, op. 10
