The Miró Quartet, one of America’s highest-profile chamber groups, enjoys its place at the top of the international chamber music scene garnering praise from audiences and critics alike. Founded in 1995 at the Oberlin Conservatory, the Miró Quartet met with immediate success, winning first prizes at the Coleman, Fischoff and Banff competitions as well as the prestigious Naumburg Chamber Music Award. The Miró Quartet was also a recipient of the Cleveland Quartet Award and was the first ensemble ever to be awarded the Avery Fisher Career Grant. Regularly invited to perform at the world’s most celebrated concert halls, the Miró Quartet hash performed at Carnegie Hall, the Berlin Philharmonic’s Kammermusiksaal and Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw among many others. A favorite of summer music festivals, the quartet has frequently appeared at the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, Chamber Music Northwest and the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival.
