The Miro Quartet

A young, cutting-edge string ensemble arrrives in Syracuse tomorrow.

True to its name, the Miro Quartet is breaking new ground. Just as Joan Miro challenged bourgeois conventions of his time with elements of surrealism and Dada,  the Miro Quartet brings a vivacious presence to the internet an active website that the musicians update regularly with announcements and blogposts. The young  quartet was also the first ensemble in history to receive the Avery Fischer Career Grant. Their most recent recording, The Miro Quartet Live, is currently the number one best seller on Naxos Direct.

This Saturday, the quartet arrives for a Syracuse Friends of Chamber Music concert just after closing a Beethoven cycle at Lincoln Center. The musicians will continue in the vein of German Romantic music with Franz Schubert's last quartet,  No.15 in G-Major, and Ludwig van Beethoven's Quartet in B-flat Major, which includes a Grosse Fuge. Both pieces emerged within one year of each other in Vienna, the city where both composers made their home.


1613 James Street at 8 PM

Tickets are $20 ($15 senior, $10 student). More information available here.
