According to their website, “The Miró [String] 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 Miró is appearing for two concerts at the La Jolla Music Society Summerfest. Their concert on Saturday, August 10, is an all-Beethoven concert featuring an early, middle, and late string quartet. This concert is a part of the Summerfest Beethoven Complete String Quartets cycle which will conclude during the 2020 Summerfest.  Their second concert features music by contemporary composers on Sunday, August 11. Both concerts are at the Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center in La Jolla.
