About This Performance

Considered one of the most remarkably talented string quartets to emerge at a young age, the Dover Quartet is “already pulling away from its peers with its exceptional interpretative maturity, tonal refinement and taut ensemble” (The Strad). Winner of top prizes at the Banff International String Quartet Competition, the Fischoff Competition and the Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition, the Philadelphia-based Dover returns to the Perelman Theater stage for a program that culminates in a performance of Schoenberg’s staggeringly beautiful Verklärte Nacht with two of the Quartet’s mentors: former Guarneri Quartet member Peter Wiley and the Orion Quartet’s Steven Tenenbom.
