The Emerson String Quartet needs no introduction. The members bring an unusual combination of exacting precision and expressive flexibility to everything they touch. This concert opens with Haydn’s “Emperor” quartet, so named for its set of variations on an anthem for Emperor Francis II. Next is Bartók’s fourth string quartet, perhaps the most furious (and glorious) in his ouevre. Emerson closes with Schubert’s massive String Quartet No. 15, which bursts with endless song-like melodies. —Dan Ruccia
