The Emerson String Quartet was one of the first of its kind on the international stage to play with alternating violins, with the outstanding levels of technique of the ensemble enabling it to stand out from the crowd across the years. Their brilliant sound also paved the way for a number of compositions to find their way into the world’s top concert halls.
For over four decades, the Emerson String Quartet has continued to affirm its status as one of the world’s leading chamber music ensembles. Founded in 1976 in New York City and named after the philosopher Ralph Wedo Emerson, the quartet is now on its farewell tour, and that includes the Theater Casino Zug, where they will play music by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, Johannes Brahms and Antonín Dvorák.
