The Dover Quartet – the group the New Yorker calls “the young American quartet of the moment” – makes its recording debut Friday, Oct 14 with the release of Tribute: Dover Quartet Plays Mozart on the Cedille label. The album pays homage to the Guarneri Quartet, with the same program as that ensemble’s own first recording, and Guarneri violist Michael Tree joins the Dovers for a Mozart quintet on the new disc. At NYC’s SubCulture on November 2, the group performs the two quartets from the CD and engages in an onstage conversation with Guarneri violinist Arnold Steinhardt. The Dovers will be signing copies of the new CD after the performance. The event is part of an especially busy season for the Dovers in NYC that includes performances in December and May for the Peoples’ Symphony Concerts, marking a continuation of their three-and-a-half year appointment as the first Ensemble-in-Residence in the 116-year history of that organization.
