The Emerson String Quartet celebrates its 40th season this year and presents a new recording, Chaconnes and Fantasias: Music of Britten and Purcell, which represents the first release on Universal Music Classics' new US classical record label, Decca Gold. On this new album, the Emersons explore the close affinities of the music of Henry Purcell and Benjamin Britten, arguably two of Britain's most well known composers. Included here are Britten's String Quartet Nos. 2 and 3, and Purcell's Chacony in G minor and Fantazias Nos. 6, 8, 10 and 11. 

Eugene Drucker (violin), and Lawrence Dutton (viola) sat down with WKCR: New York - Jordan Lee to discuss the new album. Listen to the attached clips.
