To celebrate a half-century of Mostly Mozart, the storied Emerson String Quartet pairs up with beloved pianist Emanuel Ax in their first-ever performance together at the festival. Relish the rustic peasant dances of Schubert’s wistful “Rosamunde” Quartet and Dvořák’s folk-flavored Piano Quintet in this vibrant evening.
