“The power of the Dover Quartet to communicate a work with awesome sophistication borders on the spiritual,” enthuses the Calgary Herald. Since claiming the grand prize and all three special prizes at the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition, the quartet has become a major presence on the international scene. This season has included the release of the group’s debut recording, a US tour with bassist-composer Edgar Meyer, and performances of the complete Beethoven quartet cycles over the course of six concerts in three cities. The group closes year two of its three-year Bienen School residency with three of Beethoven’s landmark string quartets: No. 4 in C Minor, No. 16 in F Major, and No. 8 in E Minor (“Razumovsky”).
