About This Performance

This concert is supported in part by Dilys Winegrad, in memory of Saul Winegrad

Known for their “expert musicianship, razor-sharp ensemble, and deep musical feeling” (Chicago Tribune), the Dover Quartet returns to the PCMS stage with Philadelphia Orchestra double-bassist Joseph Conyers, “a lyrical musician who plays with authenticity that transcends mere technique” (Grand Rapids Press). Following string quartets by Joseph Haydn and George Walker, Conyers and the Dover unite for Antonín Dvořák’s lush, richly-textured Quintet in G Major, Op. 77. 

Haydn: Quartet in E-flat Major, Op. 33, No. 2, The Joke
Walker: Quartet No. 1
Dvořák: Quintet in G Major, Op. 77
