“The way the Miró revel in the music’s daring without sacrificing any of its surface polish remains impressive.”
Daniel Ching and William Fedkenheuer, violin; John Largess, viola; Joshua Gindele, cello
Winner of an Emmy for the multimedia project Transcendence and the first ensemble to be awarded an Avery Fisher Career Grant, the Austin-based Miró Quartet seeks out new ways to communicate with audiences of all backgrounds while cultivating the longstanding tradition of chamber music. Their 2020-21 season saw them regularly performing newly-commissioned works together with music of Dvořák and Schubert. Other recent season highlights have included a sold-out return to Carnegie Hall to perform Beethoven’s Op. 59 quartet, performances for the New York Philharmonic with Gabriel Kahane, and appearances with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, as well as debut performances in Korea, Singapore, and at the Hong Kong International Chamber Music Festival.
