from the Emelin:
The award-winning Miró Quartet will perform at the Emelin Theatre in Mamaroneck on February 16th 8:00 p.m.
Described as “beautifully balancing cool refinement and intense expressivity” by the New York Times, the Miró Quartet will be bringing to Mamaroneck three essential works of the string quartet repertoire: Beethoven’s Opus 95 String Quartet ‘Serioso’; Schubert’s Death and the Maiden; and Ainsi la nuit by contemporary French composer Henri Dutilleux. This past summer, the Miró Quartet performed Dutilleux’s Ainsi la nuit at Avery Fisher Hall in New York City, in a performance honoring the composer presented and hosted by the New York Philharmonic.
garnering praise from audiences and critics alike. Founded in 1995 at the Oberlin Conservatory, the Miró Quartet met with immediate success winning first prizes at the Coleman, Fischoff, and Banff competitions as well as the prestigious Naumburg Chamber Music Award. The Miró Quartet was also a recipient of the Cleveland Quartet Award and was the first ensemble ever to be awarded the Avery Fisher Career Grant. Regularly invited to perform at the world’s most celebrated concert halls, the Miró Quartet has performed at Carnegie Hall, the Berlin Philharmonic’s Kammermusiksaal, and Amersterdam’s Concertgebouw among many others. A favorite of summer music festivals, the Quartet has frequently appeared at the Music@Menlo, Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, Chamber Music Northwest, and the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival. Deeply committed to music education, the Miró Quartet is currently the Faculty String Quartet-in-Residence at the Sarah and Ernest Butler School of Music at the University of Texas at Austin.
