Winners of the prestigious Banff International String Quartet Competition, this exciting young string ensemble make their International Festival debut with a rich programme of Haydn, Bartok and Zemlinsky.
Haydn | String Quartet in F minor Op 20 No 5
Bartok | String Quartet No 2
Zemlinsky | String Quartet No 2
Winner of the prestigious Banff International String Quartet Competition in 2013 – among numerous international prizes – the Dover Quartet is one of today’s most exciting young string ensembles.
Based in Philadelphia, they’ve been lauded for their deep musical insights – and for an astonishing maturity that belies their years. They’re charismatic and compelling – no wonder they’re considered one of the finest quartets of the moment.
For their International Festival debut, the Dover players embark on an intense emotional journey of surging passions. Following the power and nobility of Haydn’s profound F minor Quartet, Op 20 No 5, they bring together the sonic beauties of Bartok’s folk-inspired Second Quartet with the turbulent richness of Zemlinsky’s restless Second Quartet.
