The Miró Quartet, now in it’s 18th year, is consistently praised for their deeply musical interpretations, exciting performances, and thoughtful programming. Having taken its name from the Spanish artist Joan Miró, whose surrealist works are some of the most original of the 20th century, the Miró Quartet, in recent seasons, has performed at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center’s White Lights Festival, as well as Music@Menlo, the Ottawa Chamber-Fest and Chamber Music Northwest. They are currently the Faculty String Quartet-in-Residence at the Butler School of Music at the University of Texas at Austin.
Todd Crow, Music Director and Pianist of the Mt. Desert Festival of Chamber Music and Professor of Music at the Vassar College, has performed extensively in the U.S., South America and Europe. He plays regularly in the major halls of New York and London and on BBC Radio. Following this summer’s Mt. Desert festival, he returns to perform at the Festival Paesaggi Musicali Toscani in Italy.
The Miró Quartet will be performing the following pieces with Todd Crow on August 4, 2015:
String Quartet in G major, D. 887, Franz Schubert
Piano Quintet in E flat major, Op. 44, Robert Schumann
