Fresh from a banner season, the Dover Quartet juggernaut gathers steam in 2016-17, with several notable firsts ahead for the group the New Yorker calls “the young American quartet of the moment.” After making its recording debut this fall with the release of an all-Mozart album on the Cedille label, the quartet embarks on a pair of North American tours, first in company with double-bassist Edgar Meyer and then with mandolin virtuoso Avi Avital; makes debuts in eleven cities across Germany, Austria, and Switzerland; performs at Washington’s Kennedy Center and in New YorkChicagoPhiladelphiaSeattle, and two dozen more U.S. cities; and launches the second leg of its three-year residencies at Northwestern University and the Peoples’ Symphony Concerts in New York. Over the course of the season, the Dovers also undertake the first complete Beethoven quartet cycles of their career, at the Montreal Chamber Music Festival, the University of Connecticut, and SUNY Buffalo, where they follow in the footsteps of the Budapest, Guarneri and Cleveland Quartets by performing the master composer’s complete quartet output in the university’s famous “Slee Cycle” series.
