RAC Presents The Miró Quartet
Daniel Ching, violin
William Fedkenheuer, violin
John Largress, viola
Joshua Gindele, cello

We are delighted to be able to bring back for their fourth appearance one our audiences most popular quartets.  The Miró Quartet is one of Americas most celebrated having been labeled by The New Yorker as furiously committed.  This is your chance to hear them on an intimate level for a breathtaking performance that cant be duplicated in a large venue.  

Formed in 1995, the Miró Quartet was awarded first prize at several national and international competitions including the Banff International String Quartet Competition and the Naumburg Chamber Music Competition. Members of the Quartet have given master classes at universities and conservatories throughout the world, and since 2003 the Miró has served as the quartet-in-residence at the University of Texas at Austin and Ernest Butler School of Music. In 2005, the Quartet became the first ensemble ever to be awarded the coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant.

The Miró Quartet took its name and its inspiration from the Spanish artist Joan Miró, whose Surrealist works  with subject matter drawn from the realm of memory, dreams, and imaginative fantasy  are some of the most groundbreaking, influential, and admired of the 20th  century.

Highlights of recent seasons include a sold-out return to Carnegie Hall to perform Beethovens Opus 59 quartets; a performance at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center as part of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Centers inaugural residency; the world premiere of a new concerto for string quartet and orchestra by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Kevin Puts; performances of the complete Beethoven Cycle at the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival and at Tokyos Suntory Hall; and debuts in Korea, Singapore, and at the Hong Kong International Chamber Music Festival. A favorite of summer chamber music festivals, the Miró Quartet has recently performed at La Jolla Music Societys SummerFest, Chamber Music Northwest, the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, OK Mozart, and Music@Menlo.

Having released nine celebrated recordings, the Miró recently produced an Emmy Award winning multimedia project titled Transcendence. A work with visual and audio elements, Transcendence encompasses philanthropy and documentary filmmaking and is centered around a performance of Franz Schuberts Quartet in G major on rare Stradivarius instruments. The Miró records independently and makes its music available on a global scale through Apple Music, Amazon, Spotify, Pandora, and YouTube.
