Founded in 1995 at the Oberlin Conservatory, the Miró Quartet met with immediate success, winning the Coleman Chamber Music Competition and the First and Grand Prizes at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition in 1996. Other important prizes followed, among others. the Naumburg Chamber Music Award, an Avery Fisher Career Grant (the first ensemble to win it), and the Cleveland Quartet Award. The Miró is Quartet-in-Residence at a number of prestigious universities and summer festivals, including the University of Texas at Austin, where its members teach and coach chamber music. Its recording of George Crumb’s Black Angels received the Diapason d’Or.
Israeli-born pianist Shai Wosner, recipient of an Avery Fisher Career Grant and a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award in 2005, which led to the commission of a concerto for piano and chamber orchestra by Michael Hersch, pursues a career as soloist and chamber musician with a wide-ranging repertoire from Mozart to Ligeti and is known for his exceptional artistry. He has collaborated with numerous esteemed artists, such as Zukerman, Harrell, Tetzlaff and Cho-Liang Lin.
