Miró Quartet with David Shifrin, clarinet, “Rendezvous with Benny”

Wednesday, February 22, 2023
No charge for Four Arts members

The Miró Quartet has performed throughout the world for over 25 years. Based in Austin, Texas, the Miró takes pride in finding new ways to communicate with audiences of all backgrounds while cultivating the tradition of chamber music. A “Rendezvous with Benny” will celebrate the artistry of Benny Goodman, centered particularly on the relationship between Benny and the Budapest Quartet, who together recorded the Mozart quintet in the ‘50s. The Miró will be joined by clarinetist David Shifrin, winner of both the Avery Fisher Career Grant (1987) and the Avery Fisher Prize (2000), for the program, which will also include the piece that inspired the song “Rendezvous” by Alan Shulman.
