When the Emerson String Quartet releases an album, one’s expectation of excellence isn’t met -- it’s exceeded. The Emersons’ exploration of Czech chamber music on this new recording further burnishes a lustrous reputation.
The Emersons perform at a superior level of intensity, integrity, energy, and commitment demonstrated since its formation in 1976. It now brings these qualities to the first two of Janácek’s String Quartets and 3 Madrigals for violin and viola by Martinu.
Intimate Letters (Quartet no. 2) is based on Janácek’s letters to his muse, Kamila Stösslová. We are the fortunate beneficiaries of Janácek’s unrequited passion! This passionate piece also plays a key role in the Daniel-Day Lewis film, The Unbearable Lightness of Being. -- From the Label
