Each summer, the Austin Chamber Music Festival presents impressive talent from around the world. But on its final weekend, the festival spotlights internationally recognized Austin talent.

The celebrated Miró Quartet — the University of Texas’ string-quartet-in-residence — joins with pianist Michelle Schumann, an Austin favorite and the artistic director of the Austin Chamber Music Festival.

On the program is Elgar’s masterful Piano Quintet, inspired by a peaceful summer the composer spent in the English countryside. Also on the program are works by Schubert, Beethoven and Puccini.
