One of America’s most celebrated and dedicated string quartets, the Miró Quartet has been labeled by The New Yorker as “furiously committed” and noted by the Cleveland Plain Dealer for its “exceptional tonal focus and interpretive intensity.” Founded in 1995, the Quartet has performed throughout the world on the most prestigious concert stages, earning accolades from critics and audiences alike. They have championed the music of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Kevin Puts for more than a decade, and in the 2019-20 season they premiered a new string quartet entitled Home, by the composer for the Miró’s 25th anniversary.
A popular favorite of Kohl audiences, the Miró Quartet is celebrating with us this season as Honorary Chairs of our 40th Anniversary. The quartet’s commissioned work by composer Kevin Puts, Home, which will be heard on our stage on December 4, is the inspiration for this season’s focus on music from many homelands. It is our belief that music is a powerful means of representing “home” for people world-wide, and perhaps more so in turbulent times.
