For four decades, the Emerson String Quartet has maintained its stature as one of the world’s premier chamber music ensembles. In 1989, violinists Eugene Drucker and Philip Setzer, violist Lawrence Dutton, and cellist David Finckel dropped by WFMT’s studios to talk with Studs Terkel about Beethoven, Bartók, commissions, and the ensemble’s mastery of such broad repertoire.
