The Emersons have been playing for the Friends of Chamber Music since 1979 and they have retained their vitality and freshness, every performance being an example of fine communication. They have been awarded nine Grammy Awards and three Gramophone Awards – an unprecedented honour for a chamber music group, and a compliment to their energy, integrity and commitment. They have been inducted into the American Classical Music Hall of Fame. "The Emerson performances represented an extraordinary fusion of experience and authority with audacity and freshness."
