Benjamin Britten praised the “clarity, brilliance, tenderness, and strangeness” of fellow English composer Henry Purcell’s music, arranging Purcell’s Chacony for a string quartet. This arrangement opens the  Emerson  String Quartet’s upcoming Explorers Series program. Beethoven’s mighty String Quartet in A minor (op. 132) follows, one of the composer’s most celebrated chamber works written in the final years of his life. 

The  Emerson  String Quartet and Music@Menlo Audience Engagement Director Patrick Castillo will introduce and discuss these works before the performance, and you can read the program notes  here . The performance premieres at 7:00 p.m. est on April 15.
