The Miró Quartet

It’s been an impressive 20 years for The Miró Quartet. There have been important awards (first prize in the Coleman Chamber Music Competition and a Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts Avery Fisher Career Grant) and gushing accolades (The New York Times said their performance had “explosive vigor and finesse”). Presented here by Chamber Music Houston, the quartet — Daniel Ching (violin), William Fedkenheuer (violin), John Largess (viola) and Joshua Gindele (cello) — is set to perform a program that includes Gunther Schuller’s new jazz-inspired composition Quartet No. 5, Haydn’s String Quartet in D Minor, Op. 76, No. 2 “Fifths” and Schubert’s Quartet in D Minor, D. 810 Death and the Maiden.

7:30 p.m. Stude Concert Hall, Rice University, 6100 Main. For information, call 713-348-5400 or visit $25 to $75.
