Pianist Evgeny Kissin teams up with Emerson String Quartet in this live chamber music recording from their sold out Carnegie Hall performance in April 2018. This is a rare moment captured by Deutsche Grammophon and is a superstar fusion of musicians performing mesmerizing repertoire: an exquisite Fauré, a stormy Mozart and a sweepingly sensual Dvořák.

  With 9 Grammy Awards and 3 Gramophone Awards to date, the Emerson String Quartet bestrides the world of chamber music like a colossus. They are without a question among the world’s most impressive string quartets and, founded in 1976, playing today as passionately as ever.

   “The eight performances that eventually resulted, were the highlights of our season” Eugene Drucker

“You wouldn’t have wanted to be trapped in a small room with the encore, the Scherzo of Shostakovich’s Piano Quintet. With each at his most percussive, the players all but lifted the lid off the hall.” New York Times

“Piano & String. As good as it gets!” Classical Scene

  “There was wonderful fire and vivacity in the outer sections yet the Dumka movement was most striking.” Chicago Classical Review [about the Dvorak Quintet]
