Goodbye Emerson! Hello Music!

They are a staple on air, and perhaps in your record collection. My first SACMS concert brought the Emerson Quartet here in San Antonio, and I was invited to have dinner with them. We had just met up in Harrisburg where I had left that spring, and they had played. Now, cellist David Finckel has left the quartet and is writing about it. Do you have a great Emerson story or musical memory?
Having announced that I would be vacating my chair as cellist of the Emerson String Quartet I had sailed through the rest of the densely-packed 2011-12 winter season, putting off for a future date the heavy thinking that I knew would come into play as my final year of concerts approached.
