EDITORS’ NOTES

To celebrate their 40th anniversary, the revered Emerson String Quartet chose to work on the electric chaconnes and fantasias of English composers Britten and Purcell. The ensemble delves deep, especially into the former, whose chamber works embody the free lyricism and shimmering dissonance of the greatest moments of modernism.
