The prospect of an evening of chamber music made by Evgeny Kissin and the Emerson String Quartet was bound to raise the highest expectations. But what would their first collaboration bring? That question was answered in full over the course of eight concerts given in January and April 2018 in Baden-Baden, Paris, Munich, Essen, Vienna, Chicago, Boston, and New York. To say that the results – projected into music by Mozart, Fauré and Dvořák – were special would be an understatement, as can be heard in “The New York Concert,” Deutsche Grammophon’s recording of the tour’s final date at Carnegie Hall.
