Legendary Emerson String Quartet closes Houston Friends of Chamber Music 49th Season[4/27]


BY Alex Wang [ March 03, 2010 at 12:38:14 ]

HOUSTON—Houston Friends of Chamber Music will close its 2009-10 season with the Grammy-award winning Emerson String Quartet on Tuesday, April 27 at 8 p.m. in Stude Concert Hall at the Shepherd School of Music, 6100 Main Street on the Rice University campus.
The internationally acclaimed Emerson String Quartet has captivated audiences and critics alike since it was founded more than 33 years ago. Regarded as the “king” of string quartets in the world, the Emerson —Philip Setzer and Eugene Drucker (violins), Lawrence Dutton (viola) and David Finckel (cello)—has collaborated with a remarkable array of artists and composers, built a comprehensive catalogue of critically acclaimed recordings and established a distinguished teaching record.
For the past three plus decades, the Emerson String Quartet has established themselves as a Houston favorite. Audience members come from all over the state of Texas as well as surrounding states just to experience their HFCM performances. Time Magazine says they are “America’s greatest quartet.” Charles Ward, former Houston Chronicle critic remarked “The Quartet has long been one of the Friends’ favorite groups, and its first-rate performances guarantee that that relationship will continue.” The Emerson String Quartet is already scheduled to return to celebrate the Houston Friends of Chamber Music 50th season with the world premier of Shepherd School resident composer Pierre Jalbert’s, string quartet written for the Emerson.

Performing over a hundred concerts worldwide each season, the Quartet will be sharing the music of Leos Janacek and Anton Dvorak. Janacek’s String Quartet #2 “Intimate Letters” will portray passion in a tale of forbidden love and murder. The works by Dvorak will include nine selections from “Cypresses” and the String Quartet #10. These are outstanding works not often performed.

“The Emerson String Quartet is a Houston audience favorite and has become a staple on the Houston Friends of Music series,” stated Ann Fairbanks, president of the board of Houston Friends of Chamber Music. “You’ll feel you’re in one of the finest concert halls in the world. The acoustics, the intimate atmosphere and aesthetics of Stude Hall make it the perfect venue to experience Emerson Quartet again and again.”
To purchase tickets, call 713-348-5400 or visit www.HoustonFriendsofChamberMusic.org
As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Houston Friends of Chamber Music began 49 years ago for the purpose of presenting great chamber music by great performers to audiences of all generations. Each year, the Houston Friends of Chamber Music Board has the difficult task of selecting only nine performing groups from a 100 or more internationally recognized performers.

Houston Friends of Chamber Music is funded in part by grants from the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance.
