VC ARTISTS | The Dover Quartet – ‘The Young American String Quartet of the Moment’

The Dover Quartet was recently dubbed by the New Yorker magazine as ‘the young American string quartet of the moment’

1738

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

Graduates of the Curtis Institute of Music and the Rice University Shepherd School of Music, the Dovers are former top prize winners at the Fischoff, Wigmore Hall and Banff International String Quartet Competitions – and recent recipients of the prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award, the Lincoln Center Hunt Family Prize and an Avery Fisher Career Grant.

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 serve as Quartet-in-Residence for the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Chamber Music Northwest, Northwestern University Bienen School of Music, Walton Arts Center’s Artosphere, Peoples’ Symphony and the Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival.
