In today’s world of overproduced pop and EDM music, it’s nice every once in a while to unwind with something totally atmospheric and acoustic. And when it comes to string quartets, Emerson’s among the best. With a career spanning three decades, the quartet has recorded more than two dozen albums and won at least eight Grammys, three Gramophone awards and the Avery Fisher Prize, not to mention their induction into the classical music hall of fame. The current lineup for the group is Eugene Drucker and Philip Setzer on violins, Lawrence Dutton on viola, and on cello Paul Watkins, who was once a BBC Young Musician Award winner and former principal cellist for the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
