The Dover Quartet

The Philadelphia-based Dover Quartet has firmly established themselves as one of the most in-demand young, chamber ensembles to emerge internationally in recent years.

Graduates of the Curtis Institute of Music, the Dover are top prize winners at the Fischoff, Wigmore Hall and Banff International String Quartet Competitions – and recent recipients of the prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award and the Lincoln Center ‘Hunt Family’ prize, for outstanding achievement. 

Comprising violinists Joel Link and Bryan Lee, violist Milena Pajaro-Van de Stadt and cellist Camden Shaw, the Quartet was recently dubbed by the New Yorker as ‘the young American string quartet of the moment’ – with the Chicago Tribune suggesting they ‘have it in them to become the next Guarneri String Quartet’.

The Dover currently perform in excess of 100 concerts per year internationally – and have been recently appointed the Quartet-in-Residence at the Northwestern University Bienen School of Music and the Caramoor Festival.
