“The Dover Quartet players have it in them to become the next Guarneri String Quartet—they’re that good,” says the Chicago Tribune’s John von Rhein. Since claiming the grand prize and all three special prizes at the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition, the Dover Quartet has catapulted to international stardom. The group’s 2015-16 schedule, boasting 120 performances, included the first year of its residency at the Bienen School of Music, as well as their Carnegie Hall debut, their first tour of Israel, and collaborations with Anthony McGill, David Shifrin, Anne-Marie McDermott, Avi Avital, and Edgar Meyer. In addition to performing a concert each quarter, the quartet will coach student chamber music ensembles and present master classes and open rehearsals.

Joseph Haydn, String Quartet in D Minor, Op. 103
