In this new program, the Emerson Quartet explores three famous quartets written as elegies: Barber's Adagio, probably the most famous elegy ever written; Britten's third quartet and final work, completed on his death bed; and Beethoven's Opus 59, No.1, in which he references the Freemasons and their philosophies of mourning and resurrection.
