The exemplary Emerson String Quartet explores the introspective genius of Shostakovich and Beethoven through the prism of two works written towards the end of each composer’s life. In Beethoven’s otherworldly Op. 127 quartet, the self becomes four voices unified in a ruminative, tender whole. Shostakovich’s Quartet No. 15, the last composed before his death, is an intense, personal examination of the ailing composer’s mortality.

 

This performance is also part of Great Performers.
