The Chicago-based quartet actively pursues a vivid conversation between exhilarating works of the traditional canon and those written this decade, this year or this week. 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, including their Grammy-nominated collaboration with Miguel Zenón, Yo Soy la Tradición.
