Pentatone Records has announced the release of the American-based Miró Quartet's new 8-CD set: 'Beethoven - Complete String Quartets’.
The collection features Beethoven’s 16 Complete String Quartets – plus the ‘Grosse Fuge’.
‘‘Over the last two decades, we have been lucky enough to perform Beethoven's complete string quartet cycle in many different venues around the world, and it is undeniable that the experience of sharing this great musical journey with others has been one of the most impactful experiences of our lives - one that has changed us as artists and as people ...'' violist John Largess has told The Violin Channel.
‘‘Performing and recording the quartets has enabled us to explore the mystery and beauty of these works down to the tiniest detail .... in times of global uncertainty and personal upheaval, music can be one of the most powerful means to unite us all, give us inspiration to live differently, and comfort us in our struggles," he has said.
The Miro Quartet will also perform the complete cycle from the 16th of July to the 8th of August live as part of the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival - streamed exclusively on OurConcerts.live.
