MIRÓ QUARTET WITH JEFFREY KAHANE
Equally at home at the keyboard or on the podium, Jeffrey Kahane has established an international reputation as a truly versatile artist, recognized by audiences around the world for his mastery of a diverse repertoire ranging from Bach, Mozart and Beethoven to Gershwin, Golijov and John Adams.
Formed in 1995, the Miró Quartet is consistently praised for their deeply musical interpretations, exciting performances, & thoughtful programming. Each season, they perform throughout the world on the most important chamber music series & on the most prestigious concert stages, garnering accolades from critics & audiences alike. Based in Austin, TX, the Miró Quartet took its name from 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.
The dynamic Miró Quartet is joined by world-renowned pianist Jeffrey Kahane for an evening of 19th century music. The Quartet will perform Dvořák’s Cypresses and Schumann’s Quartet in A Minor, with Kahane’s fancy finger-work joining the Quartet’s shimmering sounds on Dvořák’s Piano Quintet in A Major.
These electrifying performers will wow you with their mastery of these stunning pieces – don’t miss it!
