Miró Quartet with Jeffrey Kahane
Cypresses, B. 152
String Quartet in A Minor, Op. 41, No. 1
Quintet for Piano and Strings in A Major, Op. 81
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
