Apex Concerts proudly presents the Emerson String Quartet. This legendary group has maintained its status as one of the world’s premier chamber music ensembles for more than four decades. The Quartet has made more than 30 acclaimed recordings and has been honored with nine GRAMMYs® (including two for Best Classical Album), three Gramophone Awards, the Avery Fisher Prize and Musical America’s “Ensemble of the Year” award. The Quartet collaborates with some of today’s most esteemed composers to premiere new works, keeping the string quartet form alive and relevant. The group has partnered in performance with such stellar soloists as Reneé Fleming, Barbara Hannigan, Evgeny Kissin, Emanuel Ax and Yefim Bronfman, to name a few. Formed in 1976 and based in New York City, the Emerson String Quartet takes its name from the American poet and philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson. In their Apex Concerts performance, they will bring to Reno two transcendental masterpieces of chamber music. Joseph Haydn’s monumental “The Seven Last Words of Christ” for String Quartet and in collaboration with cellist Dmitri Atapine, the immortal String Quintet in C Major by Franz Schubert, one of the last compositions by the Austrian master: the embodiment of hope and defiance in times of hardship.
