Spektral Quartet

The University of Chicago’s resident Spektral Quartet is an invaluable part of the Department of Music’s mission to enhance students’ artistic life on campus and complement their academic pursuits and to further the musical art.

Spektral Quartet actively pursues a vivid conversation between exhilarating works of the traditional canon and those written this decade, this year, or this week. With its most recent, Grammy-nominated album described by Gramophone as “highly-interactive, creative and collaborative...unlike anything its intended audience—or anyone else—has ever heard,” Spektral is known for creating seamless connections across centuries, drawing in the listener with charismatic deliveries, interactive concert formats, an up-close atmosphere, and bold, inquisitive programming.

Each quarter, the Spektral Quartet presents a public concert at UChicago as well as an interactive open rehearsal. They also coach student ensembles in the Chamber Music Program and lead sectionals for the University Symphony and University Chamber Orchestras.
