Description: The Emerson String Quartet has achieved its exalted place in the hierarchy of American quartets for good reason. The ensemble has an impeccable track record, dozens of admired recordings, and a consistent history of serious dedication to chamber music literature. This season, in what will be the first change in the quartet's membership since 1979, Paul Watkins—a distinguished soloist, award-winning conductor, and dedicated chamber musician—will join the ensemble for its return concert with ArtPower!. Marking a major milestone in the history of American chamber music, the evolution of the Emerson String Quartet will undoubtedly open up a whole new chapter of excellence. Eugene Drucker, violin; Philip Setzer, violin; Lawrence Dutton, viola; Paul Watkins, cello. PROGRAM Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: String Quartet No. 16 in E flat major, K. 428 (K.421b); Dmitry Shostakovich: String Quartet No. 11 in F minor, Op. 122; Ludwig van Beethoven: String Quartet No. 8 in E minor ("Rasumosky No. 2"), Op. 59/2
