Spektral Quartet

Spektral Quartet

In the five years since its inception, the Spektral Quartet has risen as one of Chicago’s premiere chamber ensembles, performing new music and traditional repertoire with equal rigor. With a focus on creating inviting and interactive audience experiences, the quartet has gained national attention through efforts like its Mobile Miniatures project, in which over forty composers were commissioned to write ringtone-length pieces, now available for download. The 2013/14 season saw the release of Spektral Quartet’s first two albums, Chambers (Parlour Tapes+) and From This Point Forward (Azica Records), and the 2014/15 season brings collaborations with Claire Chase, Julia Holter, and Julien Labro as well as the group’s third year as ensemble-in-residence at the University of Chicago.
