About the Event

It has been less than a decade since the Dover Quartet swept every prize at the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition, when they were just 24 years old. In that time, they have stunned the field with a “practically meteoric” (Strings) rise to becoming one of the most in-demand ensembles internationally, making their Carnegie Hall Stern Auditorium debut, serving as the Quartet-in-Residence at the Kennedy Center, and smoothly sailing from one coveted prize to the next — from the Avery Fisher Career Grant to the Cleveland Quartet Award. They finally make their Princeton University Concerts debut in a concert rescheduled from the pandemic spring of 2020.

The quartet will also return to campus on April 26 at 8PM to appear as part of the Department of Music’s Princeton Sound Kitchen series. Together with the Arx Duo, they will perform works by Department faculty and graduate student composers. More info at music.princeton.edu.

PLEASE NOTE: All attendees will be required to show photo ID and proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to the maximum extent, which now includes a booster shot for all eligible to receive it. Please read our COVID-19 policies in advance of attendance.
