About the Artist

It has only been six years since the Dover Quartet swept every prize at the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition, when they were just 24 years old. In that time, they have stunned the field with a “practically meteoric” (Strings) rise to becoming one of the most in-demand ensembles internationally, making their Carnegie Hall Stern Auditorium debut, serving as the Quartet-in-Residence at the Kennedy Center, and smoothly sailing from one coveted prize to the next — from the Avery Fisher Career Grant to the Cleveland Quartet Award. The prolific career of such young performers is well matched to the program they bring for their Princeton debut: Mozart was just 29 when he wrote his famous “Dissonance” quartet; Ravel was 28 when he took to the form. Separated by centuries, composer and performer transcend their common ages; they prove that, within the timelessness of music, there is so much to do — and so much time.

“The Dover Quartet players have it in them to become the next Guarneri String Quartet — they're that good.”
