Emerson String Quartet

October 21, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

| $30

The Arizona Friends of Chamber Music presents the Emerson String Quartet in concert, as the first event of its 2015–16 season.

The Emerson String Quartet, one of the world’s leading chamber ensembles, has made more than a dozen AFCM appearances since its Tucson debut in 1983, but this will be its first local performance including cellist Paul Watkins, who joined the group in 2013. The players know Beethoven and Bartók through and through, having performed their complete quartet cycles many times, so the ensemble promises authoritative accounts of poised early Beethoven and dynamic mid-career Bartók, as well as the final, dramatic quartet of Schubert.

The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 21 in the Leo Rich Theater at the Tucson Convention Center. General admission tickets cost $30; student tickets are $10. Visit our website at arizonachambermusic.org to purchase tickets and learn more about commissioning, underwriting, and other exciting AFCM programs, or call (520) 577-3769.
