The Emergence Quartet is a period-instrument string quartet that focuses on the birth of quartets and quartet-like pieces in the early 18th century. While many of us are familiar with Mozart and Beethoven quartets, there are hundreds of pieces written before them for two violins, viola, and cello. Emergence Quartet brings this repertoire to life by looking to the past – the baroque rhetoric that these pieces grew out of – and looking forward to the classical and romantic works that followed.
