“I’ve remarked on how blessed we are to be living in a golden age of string playing. The Dover Quartet now takes that to the next level, platinum.” –Fanfare
Winner of a Cleveland Quartet Award, an Avery Fisher Career Grant, and the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition, the Dover Quartet has become one of the most in-demand string quartets in the world. The quartet’s 2017-18 season comprised over 100 concerts throughout North America and Europe, including appearances at the Kennedy Center, Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, and Library of Congress. The group undertook three complete Beethoven quartet cycles, including the University at Buffalo’s famous “Slee Cycle,” and released their sophomore album, Voices of Defiance: 1943, 1944, 1945. In summer 2018, the quartet appears at Chamber Music Northwest, the Rockport Chamber Music Festival, Norway’s Rosendal Chamber Music Festival, the Grand Teton Music Festival, and the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival.
The Dover Quartet's residency is generously supported by the Elizabeth F. Cheney Foundation.
