Beethoven@250: Evolution of the String Quartet I
DOVER QUARTET, String Quartet
The Dover Quartet dominated the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition and swept up all the prizes. They are already at the top of their field! They return to our stage to show – in music and narrative – the inescapable influence of Beethoven upon every subsequent composer who wrote string quartets. (Part Two is presented in the fall, 2020.) “…awesome sophistication…glowing sound…delicious sonority…borders on the spiritual.” (Calgary Herald)
