M I R Ó Q UA R T E T The Miró Quartet is Faculty String Quartet in Residence at The University of Texas at Austin. Now in their 18th year, the Miró Quartet is consistently praised for their deeply musical interpretations, exciting performances, and thoughtful programming. Each season, the Miró Quartet performs throughout the world on the most important chamber music series and on the most prestigious concert stages, garnering accolades from critics and audiences alike. Of a recent performance, the Cleveland Plain Dealer wrote: “Throughout the concert, the Miró gave lessons in the art of the string quartet, shaping each of the night’s scores with a blend of refinement and vibrancy that drew the listener deeply inside the sonic arguments.” Concert highlights of recent seasons include a highly anticipated and sold out return to Carnegie Hall to perform Beethoven’s complete Opus 59 Quartets (which they also recorded); collaborations with award-winning actor Stephen Dillane as part of Lincoln Center’s White Lights Festival; and festival appearances at Chamber Music Northwest, Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival, Music@Menlo, and Ottawa ChamberFest. The 2013-2014 season will bring the Miró Quartet back to Alice Tully Hall under the auspices of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, in addition to North American performances in Cincinnati, Houston, Baltimore, and Vancouver to name a few. The Quartet will also premiere a new Concerto for String Quartet and Orchestra by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Kevin Puts with the University of Texas Symphony Orchestra, and subsequently perform the work with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra. Internationally, the Quartet will perform at the Chamber Music Today Festival in South Korea, as well as a multi-city tour of Japan. Additionally, the Quartet will make their debut at the Hong Kong Chamber Music Festival. The Miró Quartet regularly collaborates with pianist Jon Kimura Parker, percussionist Colin Currie, and mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke (whom they recently collaborated with on the quartet’s Schubert Interrupted recording). Formed in 1995, the Miró Quartet took first prizes at several national and international competitions including the Banff International String Quartet Competition and the Naumburg Chamber Music Competition. In 2005, the Miró Quartet became the first ensemble ever to be awarded the coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant. The Miró Quartet has served as the quartet-in-residence at the University of Texas at Austin Sarah and Ernest Butler School of Music since 2003. Deeply committed to music education, members of the Miró Quartet have given master classes at universities and conservatories throughout the world. Based in Austin, TX, the Miró Quartet took its name from the Spanish artist, Joan Miró, whose surrealist works — with subject matter drawn from the realm of memory and imaginative fantasy — are some of the most original of the 20th century.
