True superstars of the classical world, the Emerson String Quartet returns for the 36th year to Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History for a scintillating solo recital. For Passing the Torch II, the Quartet celebrates the most dynamic teacher-pupil relationship in the history of classical music -- that between Joseph Haydn (teacher) and Ludwig van Beethoven (pupil). Declared "the one indispensable quartet" by Newsweek, the ESQ has won nine Grammy Awards -- including two for Best Classical Album -- and the coveted Avery Fisher Prize. Now hear them perform the best quartets by both Beethoven and Haydn during this special performance amid the marble splendor of the National Museum of Natural History.
