Winner of a Cleveland Quartet Award, an Avery Fisher Career Grant, and the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition, the Dover Quartet is acclaimed for its “burnished warmth, incisive rhythms, and instinctual unanimity” (New Yorker). Highlights for 2019–20 include a return to the Savannah Music Festival, a featured appearance in the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s celebration of the Guarneri Quartet, and season-opening concerts for Chamber Music Houston, Duke Performances, and Spivey Hall. The Dover also makes its Zankel Hall debut with frequent collaborator Emanuel Ax and returns to Wigmore Hall to appear with Edgar Meyer. Other collaborators this season include pianist Inon Barnatan, violinist Ray Chen, the Escher Quartet, baritone Davóne Tines, and harpist Bridget Kibbey. In 2020 Cedille Records releases the first recording in the group’s complete Beethoven string quartet cycle.
