Mivos Quartet for Live Constructions

Sunday, March 26, 2017 - 10:00pm to 11:00pm

Tune in to Live Constructions, tonight, March 26 at 10:00 PM EST for a set and interview with the New York-based and internationally acclaimed Mivos Quartet. The string ensemble, featuring violinists Olivia de Prato and Lauren Cauley, violist Victor Lowrie, and cellist Mariel Roberts, will perform selections from composers Taylor Brook and Martin Stauning and discuss their new album Garden of Diverging Paths, as well as several other upcoming performances and projects.

The Mivos Quartet-- who are both musicians and educators-- have been reviewed as “one of America’s most daring and ferocious new-music ensembles” (The Chicago Reader), and are devoted to performing the works of contemporary composers, presenting new music to diverse audiences. The quartet has been lauded for their “performances of edge-of-your-seat intensity” and “thrillingly committed accounts” (The Strad Magazine) and has earned a reputation as a leading interpreter of contemporary music. Mivos is invested in commissioning and premiering new music for string quartet, particularly in a context of close collaboration with composers over extended time-periods.
