See This Innovative String Quartet Before They Hit the Big Time on Saturday
This weekend, the Chamber Music Society of Fort Worth welcomes the Dover Quartet to its concert series. Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as “the next Gaurneri String Quartet” and described by The New Yorker as “the young American string quartet of the moment,” Dover Quartet’s talent gives emphasis to the concert title “Scintillating Fresh Looks.” Don’t miss it this Saturday!
The Dover Quartet was formed while still students at the Curtis Institute and its name pays tribute to Dover Beach composed by fellow Curtis alumnus, Samuel Barber. In 2017-18, the Dover Quartet performed more than one hundred concerts around North America and Europe.
The Dover’s most recent honor came in 2018 when they were announced as The Kennedy Center’s new three-year-term Quartet-in-Residence. As Strad magazine observes, “With their exceptional interpretative maturity, tonal refinement and taut ensemble,” the Dover Quartet is “pulling away from their peers.”
The Dover Quartet returns to Fort Worth to present well-known classics through the fresh eyes of a young quartet at the height of their powers. Of the Dover’s 2017 performance, it was written that “the audience found out why this ensemble is making waves in the classical music world” by Theater Jones.
Tickets to witness Dover Quartet live begin at 5 dollars and may be purchased online. A pre-concert conversation with Gary Levinson (Artistic Director) and Till Meyn (Composer) will begin at 1:15 p.m., and the show will begin at 2:00 p.m.
