This is a meeting of musical legends. Galway is both an exemplary artist and a master showman, “a model of how to handle both a flute and an audience” (The Washington Post). Time, echoing the sentiments of most chamber-music fans, has called the Emerson “America’s greatest quartet.” Each performs separately, in addition to joining forces in music by Mozart and Foote.
