Feel, Reflect & Engage with Miró Quartet’s New Album ‘Home’

Pentatone releases Home, together with Miró Quartet in May 2024.

An Exploration of What Home Really Means

The Miró Quartet presents Home, a new album that explores the many concepts of what the term “home” can mean. Its complexity is woven in a variety of ways into the music: the pieces, all composed by Americans past and present, invite you to feel, reflect, and engage in Miró’s world.

In this regard, the album also represent the United States, Miró’s artistic home, in many ways. The program presents two new commissions by Kevin Puts and Caroline Shaw, as well as known and lesser known works by George Walker and Samuel Barber.

This is the Miró Quartet’s second album on Pentatone, following the recording of Beethoven’s Complete String Quartets.

“The Miró Quartet is so excited to be releasing our new album ‘Home’. This album is the culmination of a long and creative process of discovery, exploring our relationships with living composers as well as exploring and recording the existing core repertoire of American string quartet music. It has been an exciting musical journey that ultimately has brought us home as musicians in a new and special way.”
