Overview

The Emerson String Quartet, winner of nine Grammy Awards, releases an album of works never recorded during the course of their 30-year career. Old World - New World has been a long cherished dream and features the Emerson's favorite Dvorák middle and late string quartets.

A bonanza of romantic melody, not a note on this three-CD release has ever before been recorded by the Emersons. The set also includes Dvorák’s youthful and infrequently performed song cycle on the subject of love, Cypresses, which provides a compelling thematic trove for several of these enamoring quartets.
