This vital young New York string quartet embraces toothy modernism with punk-rock verve
Steve Smith, The New York Times
...the remarkable New York string ensemble Mivos Quartet, a fearless, precise, and forward-looking new-music group dedicated to some of the toughest material being written today.
— Peter Margasak, The Chicago Reader
Never has a concert consisting almost exclusively of extended techniques felt so much like a meal of comfort food... [Mivos] is so adroit at this literature, it’s as if you were hearing these instruments played in the manner for which they have always been intended.
— Mike Telin, Cleveland Classical
Mivos Quartet has a highly distinctive musical personality... performances of edge-of your seat intensity which still display a remarkable sense of subtle give and take within the ensemble....With performances this assured, incisive, and entertaining, the Mivos Quartet is an ensemble to be held in the highest regard.
David Kettle, The Strad Magazine
Mivos’ consistently masterful performance of contemporary repertoire has brought them to the forefront of the new music scene...
— Project Schott Blog New York
Skilled and focused, they share a physically, intellectually, and aesthetically energetic engagement with the high Modernist values of harmonic, gestural, and structural complexity... an exemplary contemporary ensemble.
— George Grella, New York Classical Review
An accomplished, admirably broad-minded young string quartet.
— The New York Times
The group summoned subtle gradations of tone, before the final moments dissolved into an eerie, translucent sonic mist.
— The Strad Magazine
Herausragende Werke der zeitgenössischen Streichquartett-Literatur hatte der jüngste Abend von “open music” im Museum der Wahrnehmung auf dem Programm. Wie gut, dass das gerade zu Weltgeltung aufsteigende Mivos Quartett aus New York mit unübertrefflichen Interpretationen dienen konnte.
— Kronen Zeitung, Graz
Die vier Streicher produzieren einen unglaublichen Klang. Es ist, als stürzten sie sich voller Gottvertrauen von einer hohen Klippe in die Musik. Sensibel, geradezu verträumt, aber dennoch vollständig kontrolliert.
