Dover Quartet’s winter includes NYC Peoples’ Symphony concert (Dec 10), Kennedy Center, & Avi Avital tour

Earlier this fall, the Dover Quartet made its recording debut with Tribute: Dover Quartet Plays Mozart on the Cedille label. Named “CD of the Week” by Classical Radio Boston, the album scored five-star reviews from Audiophile Audition and Fanfare’s Jerry Dubins, who heralded it as “music-making not of the highest order but of the next order,” and concluded: “How blessed we are to be living in a golden age of string playing. The Dover Quartet now takes that to the next level, platinum.” One of the works featured on Tribute is Mozart’s Quartet in B-flat, K. 589, of which – alongside quartets by Beethoven and Britten – the Dovers offer New York City audiences a live rendition this Saturday, December 10, in their role as the first Ensemble-in-Residence in the 116-year history of the Peoples’ Symphony Concerts. Winter also sees the unstoppable string quartet return to New York, to celebrate Mozart’s birthday with WQXR in a special live event and webcast from The Greene Space (Jan 27); embark on a U.S. tour with mandolin virtuoso Avi Avital (Dec 6; Feb 7, 11-19); and give recitals in Philadelphia (Jan 11 & 29), at Northwestern University (Jan 15), and at Washington’s Kennedy Center (Jan 9), where, as the Washington Post recognized, the Cleveland Quartet Award-winning group’s debut was “a triumph” that showed “why they should be on [music lovers’] must-hear list.”
