The Color Purple and Miro Quartet
Miró Quartet
and Kiera Duffy, soprano

A Personal Revolution
Wednesday, January 29, 7:30 pm
The Auditorium, Hadley Stage

A collaboration with the University of Iowa String Quartet Residency Program

The Miró Quartet and soprano Kiera Duffy will explore the revolutionary music of one of Beethoven’s middle quartets—as well as music by composers he inspired. Schubert was part of an innovative group of artists, poets, and musicians in Vienna after Beethoven; Berg emerged from the post-Freudian psychological revolution of the 1910s and 1920s; and George Crumb was immersed in the radical climate of the 1960s and 1970s.

Miro Quartet

Program (subject to change):
Schubert: Quartettsatz in C Minor, D 703
Schubert: “Gretchen am Spinnrade,” “Im Frühling,” and “Der Erlkönig”
Berg: Lyric Suite Crumb: Three Early Songs
Beethoven: Quartet in E Minor, Op. 59, No. 2

Austin, Texas, boasts a spectacular music scene, and Gina Chavez is a ten-time Austin Music Award winner and was named the Austin Musician of the Year in 2015. Chavez traverses boundaries—in her musical styles, her bilingual lyrics, and her work as a cultural ambassador with the U.S. State Department—and creates a welcoming space for all. After spending time in El Salvador, she found a passion for working with young people, creating this family-friendly concert that will be the inaugural Kids Club Hancher event.
