Equally at home at the keyboard or on the podium, Jeffrey Kahane has established an international reputation as a truly versatile artist, recognized by audiences around the world for his mastery of a diverse repertoire ranging from Bach, Mozart and Beethoven to Gershwin, Golijov and John Adams.

Formed in 1995, the Miró Quartet is consistently praised for their deeply musical interpretations, exciting performances, & thoughtful programming. Each season, they perform throughout the world on the most important chamber music series & on the most prestigious concert stages, garnering accolades from critics & audiences alike. 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.

The dynamic Miró Quartet is joined by world-renowned pianist Jeffrey Kahane for an evening of 19th century music. The Quartet will perform Dvořák’s Cypresses and Schumann’s Quartet in A Minor, with Kahane’s fancy finger-work joining the Quartet’s shimmering sounds on Dvořák’s Piano Quintet in A Major.

These electrifying performers will wow you with their mastery of these stunning pieces – don’t miss it!

“Throughout,
 the
 Miró 
Quartet
 played
 with
 explosive 
vigor 
and 
technical
 finesse.”
– New
 York 
Times

“The
 quartet
 has 
the
 singular 
skill 
of 
becoming
 the
 music 
without 
imposing 
themselves
 on 
the 
composer's 
muse.
 No
 passing
 sensation,
the
 Miró
 Quartet 
is
 surely
 among
 the
 most 
promising
 chamber
 ensembles 
around.”
– Denver 
Post
