Thirty-seven years is a long time to be together (probably longer than most Yale School of Music students have been alive). That togetherness has paid huge dividends for the Emerson String Quartet, who will perform two Viennese gems (Haydn’s Quartet in G minor, Op. 20, No. 3. and Beethoven’s Quartet in C major, Op. 59, No. 3, of the Razumovskys) and a 20th-century work (Britten’s Quartet No. 2 in C major, Op. 36, from 1945) at Yale’s Morse Recital Hall on Tuesday, Dec. 10 at 8 p.m.

The Yale School of Music presents the Orion String Quartet and the woodwind quintet Windscape in a performance of J. S. Bach’s masterful Art of the Fugue on Tuesday, October 28 at 7:30pm.
In this concert, Bach’s complete Art of the Fugue will be performed by one of today’s most sought-after string quartets and a wind quintet that has won renown for vibrant and inventive performances. The program, which premiered at the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, has been recorded on Deutsche Grammophon.
The Boston Globe praises the performers as musicians with a “certain aura—that of the fabulously skilled, much sought-after… who can tackle anything.” MORE
