Warm up your January with a Frankly Music favorite
Frankly Music kicks off 2022 with one of America’s most celebrated string quartets, The Miró Quartet. Based in Austin, TX, and thriving on the area’s storied music scene, the Miró takes pride in finding new ways to communicate with audiences of all backgrounds while cultivating the longstanding tradition of chamber music.
The Miró celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2019, performing a wide range of repertoire that pays homage to the legacy of the string quartet and looks to the future of chamber music and string quartet playing in the U.S. In honor of the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, the Quartet concludes its recording cycle of Beethoven’s complete string quartets, with a box set released on Pentatone. The Miró continues its Archive Project, honoring the American string quartet tradition by recreating historic programs by the Flonzaley, Kneisel, and Kolisch Quartets, with performances at Carnegie’s Weill Hall and the Library of Congress in Washington, DC, and in other cities.
This season is dedicated to the memory of Jeanne Schmitz.
