With over thirty recordings and numerous awards including nine Grammy Awards, three Gramophone Awards, the Avery Fisher Prize, and named Ensemble of the Year by Musical America magazine, the Emerson Quartet is one of the icons of contemporary chamber music.
The New York Times praised the work of the quartet and commented that "One of the characteristics of the Emerson Quartet is that its players have the ability to produce a sweet and glossy sound".
Founded in 1976 and headquartered in New York City, the Quartet took its name from the poet and philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson.
As an exclusive artist for Sony Classical, the Emerson Quartet recently released Journeys, its second CD, featuring Souvenir de Florence by Tchaikovsky and Schoenberg's Verklärte Nacht. With the arrival of cellist Paul Watkins in May 2013, the Emerson Quartet took a new direction, full of freshness and warmth. Watkins is a soloist, conductor and dedicated chamber musician, who has given the Quartet a rich tone and vibrant sense of humor.
