The Emerson String Quartet has amassed more than 30 acclaimed recordings, 9 Grammy Awards, 3 Gramophone Awards, and the coveted Avery Fisher Prize, among other achievements. The list of the quartet's connections to Middlebury is nearly as long: 31 performances, 4 honorary degrees, and a performance at the Mahaney Center's opening gala in 1992. Honoring cellist David Finckel's last season with the Emerson, the Performing Arts Series presents the quartet in Mead Chapel, where they made their campus debut in 1981. The program includes works by Schumann, Shostakovich, and Beethoven (his first "Razumovsky" quartet). Associate Professor Larry Hamberlin offers a preconcert lecture at 7:30 PM.
