Miró Quartet: Beethoven Winter Festival

Miró Quartet: Beethoven Winter Festival

February 17- 26, 2017

“…like being inside a perfectly tuned Porsche with an expert hand at the wheel…” – Austin Chronicle

Experience the Complete Quartets

Featuring the Miró Quartet

“The string quartet was the medium Beethoven reserved for his most intimate and personal musical expressions, and the cycle is an inside peek into this great man’s inner life from the age of 30 until his very last months. Hearing the quartets in compositional order, the audience follows Beethoven’s own life experiences, from concert to concert, in the evolution and flow of the music: from youth and success, through frustration and personal challenges; through his maturity; and through his final struggles with illness, relationships, and ultimately with death. The genius of his music is that it seems to speak directly to us, with a wordless voice of understanding, compassion and hope. 

To go on the journey of the complete Beethoven quartet cycle together is a rare, often once-in-a-lifetime experience. To share this tremendous experience with you is one of the most meaningful things that we, as artists, ever do.” -Daniel, Will, John, and Josh of the Miró Quartet

This will be the Miró Quartet’s fourth appearance on Chamber Music Tulsa’s series. They previously performed here in 2006, 2012, and 2014.
