Jay and Clay Barr Education Center, Norfolk

These phenomenal young players formed their quartet when they were just 19-year-old students at the Curtis Institute. There followed a stunning sweep of top awards and a leap to international stardom, with The New Yorker magazine naming them “the young American string quartet of the moment.” Virginia Arts Festival audiences will have a chance to hear them in repertoire that includes Mozart as part of the André-Michel Schub celebration. That’s good news: in the spate of glowing reviews that have greeted their performances, The Washington Post particularly admired their way with Mozart: “the sound was lambent and evenly balanced, with the musicians delighting in uncovering this near-perfect score’s musical details and, tellingly, enjoying hearing one another play it. A triumph!”

"The Dover Quartet players have it in them to become the next Guarneri String Quartet — they're that good. Expert musicianship, razor-sharp ensemble, deep musical feeling and a palpable commitment to communication made their performances satisfying on many levels." – Chicago Tribune

“The Dover Quartet’s Kennedy Center debut shows why they should be on must-hear list.” The Washington Post
