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. Emergence Quartet explores this underplayed repertoire by using historically-accurate instruments from the years these pieces were composed. This dynamic program includes quartets by Haydn, Richter, Fasch, and Telemann, to showcase a breadth of possibilities for this "new" 18th century string ensemble.
