About This Performance

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, Fischoff and Wigmore Hall International String Competitions, the Philadelphia-based Dover joins forces with the incomparable bassist and composer Edgar Meyer—“the most remarkable virtuoso in the relatively un-chronicled history of his instrument” (The New Yorker)—for a performance of Meyer’s own String Quintet, which encompasses bluegrass, jazz and classical styles.
