The dynamic Miró Quartet enjoys its place at the top of the international chamber music scene. Now in its second decade, this American quartet continues to captivate audiences with its startling intensity, fresh perspective, and mature approach. 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. In 2005, the Quartet received the Cleveland Quartet Award and was the first ensemble ever to be awarded the coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant. Their program includes a newly commissioned string quartet by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Gunther Schuller.
