Catapulted to international stardom following a stunning sweep of all prizes at the Banff International String Quartet Competition in 2013, the Grammy-nominated Dover Quartet has become one of the most in-demand ensembles in the world. Among their honors and awards are the Avery Fisher Career Grant, Chamber Music America's Cleveland Quartet Award, and Lincoln Center's Hunt Family Award, as well as grand and first prizes at the Fischoff Chamber Music Competition. The quartet's 2021-22 season includes world premiere performances of Marc Neikrug's Piano Quintet No. 2 at the Kennedy Center with Haochen Zhang, Chris Rogerson's Dream Sequence for Santa Fe Pro Musica with Anne-Marie McDermott, and Steven Mackey's theatrical musical work Memoir at Artosphere with arx duo and narrator Natalie Christa. In October 2021, the quartet released its second volume of the complete Beethoven string quartets on the Cedille Records label.
