About the Artists

Our audiences keep telling us to bring back the Miró Quartet. And we have – four times so far. We plan to have them here in a live concert in our 2021-22 season, but until then, enjoy this one hour live Listening Club.

Formed in 25 years ago and named for Surrealist Spanish artist Joan Miró, the quartet was awarded first prize at several national and international competitions including the Banff International String Quartet Competition and the Naumburg Chamber Music Competition. Members of the Quartet have given master classes at universities and conservatories throughout the world, and since 2003, the Miró has served as the quartet-in-residence at the University of Texas at Austin and Ernest Butler School of Music. In 2005, the quartet became the first ensemble ever to be awarded the coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant.

Highlights of recent seasons include a sold-out return to Carnegie Hall to perform Beethoven’s Opus 59 quartets; a performance at  the Saratoga Performing Arts Center as part of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s inaugural residency; and the world premiere of a new concerto for string quartet and orchestra by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Kevin Puts.  A favorite of summer chamber music festivals, Miró Quartet has performed at La Jolla Music Society’s SummerFest, Chamber Music Northwest, the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, OK Mozart, and Music@Menlo.

Miró’s ninth recording, a multimedia project titled Transcendence won an Emmy.  A work with visual and audio elements, Transcendence encompasses philanthropy and documentary filmmaking and  is centered around a performance of Franz Schubert’s Quartet in G major on rare Stradivarius instruments.
