Bio:

The Dover Quartet’s rise from being an up-and-coming young ensemble to occupying a spot at the top of their field has been “practically meteoric” (Strings). Catapulted to prominence after sweeping the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition, the group has become a major presence on the international scene. With its burnished warmth, incisive rhythms, and natural phrasing, the Quartet’s distinctive sound has helped confirm its status as “the young American string quartet of the moment” (New Yorker). Named as Cleveland Quartet Award winner for the 2016–17 and 2017–18 seasons, the group was awarded the Avery Fisher Career Grant in March 2017.
