Notes & Reviews:

When the Emerson String Quartet releases an album, one's expectation of excellence isn't met - it's exceeded. The Emersons' exploration of Czech chamber music on this new recording further burnishes a lustrous reputation. The Emersons perform at a superior level of intensity, integrity, energy, and commitment demonstrated since its formation in 1976. It now brings these qualities to the first two of Janacek's String Quartets and 3 Madrigals for violin and viola by Martinu.
