For lovers of the art of the chamber ensemble, the long run of the now-venerable Emerson String Quartet is a particularly satisfying one. Marking four decades of truly authoritative music-making, the group presents a characteristically wide-angled program showcasing the Emerson's famed finesse in superbly varied repertoires: the "new" old-school romanticism of Johannes Brahms' String Quartet in A minor is paired with Egon Wellesz's knottily "post-tonal" Five Sonnets for soprano and string quartet, along with the opulent, dark densities of Alban Berg's Lyric Suite. For the latter piece, the ensemble is joined by another just plain legendary performer, soprano Renée Fleming.
