Australian Debut

The intrepid Dover Quartet made its Australian debut in April, a trip that was made complete by the feeding of kangaroos in Tasmania! The four-day Musica Viva spectacular in Sydney featured dozens of fabulous musicians, including the Dover’s longtime collaborator Edgar Meyer.

The Quartet made quite an impression on their Australian audience as Limelight magazine raved, “…the quartet gave a taut, fiery performance of meticulous ensemble work and fiery spirit.” The Dover is enjoying some well-earned time off this week before returning to Carnegie Hall for a program featuring the music of Tchaikovsky, Bartók, and Dvořák that will mark the Quartet’s fourth performance at Carnegie in as many years.
