Regulars at major music festivals and concert halls across the globe, this award-winning quartet takes its name from 18th-century Spanish philosopher Pablo Minguet, who wished to make the arts accessible to everyone. Champions of contemporary composers like Rihm and Stockhausen, the Minguet is equally at home with Romantic masters. Treasures both new and well-known are on offer in this beautiful program, including favorites by Czech composers and a transcription of one of Gustav Mahler’s most affecting lieder.
