Since its inception, the Spektral Quartethas sought out the discourse between the great works of the traditional canon and those written this decade, this year, or this week. Creating connections across centuries, the group further invites its listeners in with charismatic deliveries, interactive concert formats, an up-close atmosphere, and bold, inquisitive programming. 

In addition to its forward-thinking Mobile Miniatures project, which commissioned over forty notable composers to write ringtones for download to mobile devices, the quartet’s recorded output includesChambers (featuring works by Chicago-based composers), From This Point Forward (a Latin-jazz and tango collaboration with bandoneon virtuoso Julien Labro), Fin de siècle (Ernest Chausson’s Concerto for Violin, Piano, and String Quartet with Swiss violin soloist Rachel Kolly d’Alba), and an upcoming, comedy-themed album on the Sono Luminus label, Serious Business

The Spektral Quartet is proud to be serving its fourth year as ensemble-in-residence at the University of Chicago’s Department of Music.
