    I Also Recommend:

    Precision has its virtues

    There appear to be two schools of thought about Emerson String Quartet: they are either technically perfect but sterile, or technically perfect and sublime. I align with the latter camp, so I highly recommend this album - as well as "The Haydn Project" which I initially hesitated to buy because of hearing that same complaint. I'm so glad I went ahead anyway; these are recordings I treasure. Listen to the sound samples, and see if you aren't tempted into the subtle pleasures offered by this marvelous foursome.

    The worst string quartet around

    The Emerson Quartet's members are admirable people, contributing time and energy to teaching and to charitable causes -- I admire them for that. But they are flat-out the worst string quartet currently on the world stage -- technically flawless but utterly empty, interpretively wayward for the sake of being interpretively wayward, spiritually bankrupt performances. They have an uncanny ability to homogenize everything they play -- everything sounds the same, whether it's Mozart or Shostakovich. Their fame is truly appalling, as they are teaching entire generations of listeners to value technical perfection over depth of feeling and understanding. Their performances are not merely superficial, they're bad. Avoid this group like the plague. As for the fabulous Mozart Quartets, try the performances by the Chilingirian Quartet, or Quatuor Mosaiques -- both these groups understand Mozart and bring great feeling to every note they play; their performances are profound and full of life.
