The Emerson Encores

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
America's premiere string quartet offers a collection of encores -- 16 pieces they often play to cap an evening's performance. These include Barber's Adagio, Borodin's "Baubles, Bangles, and Beads," and two previously unreleased tracks: Puccini's "Crisantemi" and Wolf's "Italian Serenade." At 76 minutes, it's a generous collection -- another feather in the Emerson's cap in their 25th anniversary season.
