Emerson String Quartet & Barbara Hannigan - Infinite Voyage - Gramophone

What a thought provoking way to crown 40 years of excellence joined by Barbara Hannigan and Bertrand Chamayou as guests, the Emersons sound as vital at the end as they did the start of their acclaimed career (...) no singer in Op 10 can surpass Barbara Hannigan in anatomising its searing mix of primitive and spiritually aspiring states of mind, matched to the hilt by the Emerson’s close-knit delineation of the massed shards of motivic elements the music throws out in its quest for transcendence.
