Mivos Quartet
New York City-based Mivos Quartet, “one of America’s most daring and ferocious new-music ensembles” (The Chicago Reader), is pleased to make their Chicago debut at Consellation, celebrating their recent album release on Carrier Records, Reappearances.

Mivos will perform David Brynjar Franzon’s haunting on Repetition and Reappearances from the album, plus young Chinese composer Ke Xu’s phenomenal hyper-expressive work Tai Chi, which was selected as the winning composition of Mivos’ inaugural I Creation Prize for Chinese composers. To finish the evening, Mivos will perform Helmut Lachenmann’s String Quartet No. 3, Grido, a technical and expressive tour de force which has become a classic of the 21st-century repertoire.

The Mivos Quartet is devoted to performing the works of contemporary composers, presenting new music to diverse audiences. Since the quartet's beginnings in 2008 they have performed the works of emerging and established international composers who represent varied aesthetics of contemporary classical composition. Mivos is also committed to working with guest artists, exploring multi-media projects involving live video and electronics, creating original compositions and arrangements for the quartet, and performing improvised music.
