To crown a banner season highlighted by the group’s Carnegie Hall debut and Cleveland Quartet Award win, the Dover Quartet looks forward to an intensive summer on the U.S. festival circuit. Besides making debuts at the Toronto Summer Music Festival and Madeline Island Music Camp, where they coach young chamber musicians alongside the Arianna and Pacifica Quartets, the Dovers return to Bravo! Vail, the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, the Ottawa Chamberfest, Mt. Desert Festival of Chamber Music, and Chamber Music Northwest, where, during a weeklong residency, they join clarinet virtuoso David Shifrin for the world premiere of a new quintet by Richard Danielpour. For the Mark di Suvero Commemorative Concert at Montana’s Tippet Rise Art Center, they play Schubert’s transcendent String Quintet in C for their first collaboration with Trailblazer Award-winning cellist Matt Haimovitz. And, on a summer lineup that also includes Beethoven’s complete Razumovsky Quartets and works by composers ranging from Haydn and Mozart to Smetana, Dohnányi, Shostakovich, and Britten, they continue to champion a recent commission by David Ludwig, named one of NPR’s “Top 100 Composers Under 40.” Click here to see the Dover Quartet play Shostakovich.
