Making Music with the Emerson String Quartet

Recommended for Music Education and Music Appreciation: Senior High and Adult Audiences

Making Music: The Emerson String Quartet is a film which provides a close look, through conversation and performance, at the personal and musical qualities that must combine to make an ensemble of excellence. Shot during a performance week one summer on Martha's Vineyard, the film gives a sense of involvement with the four articulate young men who are the Emerson String Quartet, while helping to illuminate chamber music for students and general viewers alike. In this film, we see and hear the Emerson String Quartet perform fragments from their exceptionally varied repertoire, including Beethoven, Haydn and Schubert. The final sequence of Making Music shows how the Quartet plans, rehearses and performs the last movement of the Ravel Quartet.

This film also tell us that three of the Emerson String Quartet were born to musical families, while the talent of one of the musicians, Lawrence Dutton of Wantagh, New York, was discovered through his third grade introduction to an instrument, a talent then fostered and encouraged by his school music teacher.

"Making Music should be of interest to chamber music lovers, to music students, to anyone who is fascinated by the dynamic of four persons of great individuality working successfully toward a common goal." -Lawrence Lesser, President New England Conservatory of Music
