The Miró Quartet captured our hearts during the Beethoven Winter Festival in 2017. Our audiences were profoundly moved by the experience, and we couldn’t wait to have them back to Tulsa. We were disappointed when we had to put our April concerts on hold, but we are thrilled we are able to bring this world-class (and fan favorite!) ensemble directly to your home!
Chamber Music Tulsa is pleased to be among the group of elite presenters that commissioned
a String Quartet by Pulitzer Prize-winner Kevin Puts. This work, "Home", will be performed by the Miró Quartet during our Sunday Afternoon Virtual Concert.
This concert weekend includes two pre-concert lectures by Kevin Puts, a post-concert Q&A with the quartet and Puts, and program notes written by Jason Heilman. The Miró Quartet and Kevin Puts will also record a video “listening guide” for our new co-commission, "Home"!

Get to know the Miró Quartet
The Miró Quartet took its name and its inspiration from the Spanish artist Joan Miró, whose Surrealist works — with subject matter drawn from the realm of memory, dreams, and imaginative fantasy — are some of the most groundbreaking, influential, and admired of the 20th century.
The Quartet’s 2018-19 season includes performances for the New York Philharmonic with Gabriel Kahane; collaborations with Anton Nel, Clive Greensmith, and Martin Beaver; and appearances with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the Detroit Chamber Music Society, and the LMMC in Montreal. Other recent highlights include performances at the Phillips Collection, Chamber Music Monterey Bay, the Green Music Center, Chamber Music Northwest, and Emerald City Music in Seattle, as well as collaborations with David Shifrin, Andre Watts, and Wu Han, and a performance of the complete Beethoven cycle in just nine days for Chamber Music Tulsa.
This concert weekend is being held in honor of Emily Wood's 95th Birthday
and in memory of her dear husband, Phil Wood.
