NEW HAVEN >> The Miro String Quartet, a widely traveled group that is now the Faculty String Quartet in Residence at the University of Texas at Austin, will play the music of Schubert, Beethoven and Dutilleux Tuesday evening in a Yale School of Music concert in Morse Recital Hall.

The 8 p.m. concert will feature Beethoven’s String Quartet in B-flat major, Op. 18, No. 6, known as “La Malinconia” for the name of the slow introduction to the third movement; “Ainsi la Nuit” (“Thus the Night”), written in 1976 by the late French composer Henri Dutilleux; Schubert’s String Quartet No. 14 in D minor, “Death and the Maiden,” a pillar of the chamber music repertoire.

The Miro String Quartet — Daniel Ching, violin; William Fedkenheuer, violin; John Largess, viola; and Joshua Gindele, cello — was founded in 1995 and performs throughout the world.

Also presented by Yale School of Music will be Wednesday’s Horowitz Piano Series concert, a recital by the pianist and faculty member Boris Berman at 8 p.m. Berman, acclaimed for virtuosity and musicality, will perform late piano pieces by Johannes Brahms: Two Rhapsodies, Op. 79, Seven Fantasias, Op. 116, Three Intermezzos, Op. 117 and Six Pieces for Piano, Op 118. The concert will conclude with Four Piano Pieces, Op. 119.
