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. In their 2021-22 season, the Miró premiered Microfictions written for them by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw with performances in Carnegie Hall, Houston, La Jolla and Hong Kong. The Miró is also partnering with soprano Karen Slack in a new program exploring the works of Florence Price and Margaret Bonds with concerts scheduled for the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Shriver Hall, Music Toronto, the Phoenix Chamber Music Society, and Chamber Music Northwest.
