The Emerson String Quartet, undoubtedly one of the most famous string quartets in the world, will give its last concert in 2023. In order to honour the quartet's recording career of over 35 years, two recordings from recent years have been added to their highly successful Complete Edition (2016), which is now only available in rare quantities. The "The New Complete Recordings" box set thus also includes the double album "The New York Concert" with Evgeny Kissin and the 2017 recording "Chaconnes and Fantasias - The Music of Britten and Purcell".

Among the highlights of the quartet's numerous international awards, including 9 Grammy Awards, are the complete Beethoven, Shostakovich and Bartok string quartets as well as the successful Bach album “Bach: The Art of Fugue”.

The liner notes have been revised by Eugene Drucker and feature an excellent retrospective of Emerson String Quartet’s achievement. Numerous photos of the musicians and the original covers of the albums are also included in this limited edition.
