Amelia Islander

The Dover Quartet in concert march 31

Mar 24, 2017 02:00AM
The Dover Quartet, one of the most in-demand ensembles in the world, will perform March 31 at 7:30 p.m. at Amelia Baptist Church as part of the Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival.

The Dover Quartet catapulted to international stardom following a stunning sweep of the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition, becoming one of the most in-demand ensembles in the world. The New Yorker recently dubbed them “the young American string quartet of the moment,” and The Strad raved that the Quartet is “already pulling away from their peers with their exceptional interpretive maturity, tonal refinement and taut ensemble.” In 2013-14, the Quartet was the first ever Quartet-in-Residence for the venerated Curtis Institute of Music, and is now faculty Quartet-in-Residence at Northwestern University's Bienen School of Music.
