Dover Quartet Plays Back-to-Back Concerts in NYC (May 5 & 6), before Intensive Summer of Festivals

On the heels of an extensive German tour, the Dover Quartet – “one of the world’s finest young string quartets” (New Yorker) – comes back to New York City for a weekend of back-to-back appearances. On Saturday, May 5, the group continues its three-year tenure as the first Ensemble-in-Residence of the Peoples’ Symphony Concerts with a program of Haydn, Borodin, and Mozart. The following day, on Sunday, May 6, the quartet heads a few blocks further downtown for a pairing of Mozart and Mendelssohn in the weekly GatherNYC series at SubCulture. These Big Apple dates punctuate a full spring that also sees the Dovers return to Northwestern University for the next installment in their specially created faculty residency, before embarking on an intensive transatlantic summer festival lineup. Highlighted by performances at the Edinburgh International Festival, Norway’s Rosendal Chamber Music Festival, Wyoming’s Grand Teton Music Festival, Oregon’s Chamber Music Northwest, Massachusetts’s Rockport Chamber Music Festival, and the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, the summer caps another banner season for the 2016-18 Cleveland Quartet Award-winning group that is, as the Washington Post observes, “the very model of a modern young classical ensemble.”
