RAC Presents the Miró Quartet
Program:
HAYDN Quartet in D Major, Op. 64, No. 5, "The Lark"
DUTILLEUX Ainsi la nuit
intermission
SCHUBERT  Quartet in D minor, D. 810, "Death and the Maiden"

Hailed by the New York Times as possessing "explosive vigor and technical finesse", the dynamic Miró Quartet, one of America's highest-profile chamber groups enjoys its place at the top of the international chamber music scene. Now in its second decade, the quartet continues to captivate audiences and critics around the world with its startling intensity, fresh perspective, and mature approach. Fitting, as it's named for 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.  

Founded in 1995 at the Oberlin Conservatory, the Miró Quartet met with immediate success winning first prize at the 50th annual Coleman Chamber Music Competition in April 1996, and taking both the first and grand prizes at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition two months later. Earning both the First Prize and the Piéce de Concert Prize at the 1998 Banff International String Quartet Competition, the Miró Quartet also won the prestigious Naumburg Chamber Music Award in 2000. In 2005, the Quartet received the Cleveland Quartet Award and was the first ensemble ever to be awarded the coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant.
