April 1, 2022
Meany Hall

The Emerson String Quartet’s performances combine “an extraordinary fusion of experience and authority with audacity and freshness” (The Boston Globe). Over four decades, the quartet has accumulated an impressive list of achievements, including over 30 notable recordings, nine Grammys, three Gramophone Awards and the Avery Fisher Prize. These long-time friends of Meany perform works by Haydn and Borodin, and the poetic Lyric for Strings, composed by George Walker — the first African American to win the Pulitzer Prize in Music — as an elegy to his grandmother.
