Since its inception, the Spektral Quartet has sought connections between traditional classical works and those written in the 20th and 21st centuries.

The ensemble’s endeavors have included the Mobile Miniatures project—which commissioned over 40 composers from across the country to write ringtone-length pieces for mobile devices—and collaborations with bandoneón-accordion virtuoso Julien Labro, Grammy-winning pianist Billy Childs, and saxophonist Miguel Zenón, a Guggenheim and MacArthur fellow.
